1 August 2010 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

Uncle Poldi is an old park warden who is going to be retired in 5 days. He worked 52 years in the park and is always saying: "I will only miss that beautiful green lawn there!" Misu, a small boy in the house, wants to make his old friend happy and to organize of laying lawn tiles into the yard of the house. To do this, first all the residents of the house have to sign a petition, then the petition has to be brought to an office where the director has to sign it. One of the residents, Miss Kamilla, does not want to sign the petition. Misu and his friends, Mrs. Poldi and uncle Dezső, have to convince Miss Kamilla to sign it. They do finally this with the help of Oszkár the coal man and his mother. Finally all friends in the street help to lay the tiles and uncle Poldi can have the yard with his "beautiful green lawn" for his retirement years. Good movie for children of about 5-7 years and their parents.
