Fun in the sixties
31 January 2002 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

It makes no sense to think this movie makes 'those terrible days' seem 'golden'. Instead, it makes us able to laugh at those strange days with the nostalgic music balanced by fast-edited and ironic/satiric pictures. And don't forget: even if those were quite dark ages for a country, still those people who were young in those ages could (and had to) find the fun in the then-present conditions. Whoever whenever and wherever grows up usually remembers his young ages as something nice, even if they know that age was not politically correct at all. Please forget politics; enjoy the satiric-nostalgic show with lot of fun.
