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.

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.
