Trivia

According to an interview with Imre Olvasztó, the casting for Bendegúz' role was held in an orphanage. The casting crew told the children that who kicks the director from behind will get the role. No one believed, only Olvasztó had the courage. After kicking Sándor Mihályfy he was asked why he did that. Olvasztó replied in a polite manner that he wanted to get the role. Mihályfy laughed and hired him. See more »

Goofs

In the middle of the dumpling fight scene Imre Olvasztó throws Róbert Koltai in the eye. Koltai leaves the room, holding his face. However he is seen in the room lying under the table in the next shot. See more »

Quotes

Bendegúz: Sad and strange things have happened to me that you wouldn't believe! I've heard people say that I'm a peculiar lad and others say I should have been hanged at birth. They say I won't make an honest man either way. They even told my old mother to wring my neck and sooner rather than later.

This movie made me laugh so hard, it hurt!!!!!!!!
15 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I read the book and saw the movie many times. It's just hilarious. We can all relate to the cute little kid, Bendeguz, who sees people's shortcomings so accurately and shares them with us in such a genuinely sweet and funny way. The dialogs capture a child's sense of humor and reminds us what it is like to be a kid living in the grown-up's world. You also see rural life during the early 20th century Hungary, which was simplistic but eventful. Bendeguz's mischiefs are so funny, they make any viewer laugh regardless of his or her nationality. This movie will touch you, make you laugh and you'll definitely want your kids to see it. Watch this movie anytime, especially when you feel sad and it will cheer you up and remind you of the preciousness of life.
