In Budapest, two rival gangs of young boys lay claim to a vacant lot. The hostilities escalate yet never quite boil over into actual violence. Just when things do get out of hand, however, ... See full summary »
This animated movie meant to show Marcell Jankovics's total devotion and love to our country... Unfortunately, its NOT very entertaining for everyone, and foreigners might simply find it dull. And they're not to blame at all. Looks like this one's been made to "stay in the family". The truth is: It looks more like like a strange ethnographic study on the Hungarian race... Otherwise, its a "complete" movie in its own theme, so if you want to watch some really original animation (horribly dated for it's time, unfortunately) ideas for like 90 minutes, or you're interested in our thousand years old myths and legends, it is definitely worths a watch. Why not.
However, this movie is pretty much like a compilation of Jankovics's earlier series, "Mondák a magyar történelemből", which was way better (it was spot on, at the time it was made, and the episodic nature of these stories fits much better into a series of short cartoons, than a long, and extremely fragmented one), so If you can speak our language, I'd recommend that instead of this movie.
Although, if you want to see a VERY GOOD film in the same genre and sprit, from the same director, grab "Fehérlófia" instead!
