Storyline

Miklós Fenyö's parents returned to Communist Hungary in the mid sixties - when everyone else was fleeing to the West. For young Miki, arriving from America sporting a Hawaiian shirt, a perfect quiff and a rebellious streak, life under dictatorship was going to be tough. Miki's old friends don't know what to make of his outrageous clothes, flawless American accent and collection of original Buddy Holly 45s. His childhood sweetheart is cold and distant while local tough guy Röné is unmoved by the challenger to his rock 'n' roll crown. But that's not all. When the authorities see the effect Miki's gyrating hips and lewd music have on teenage girls, they won't stand for it. His father's job is on the line, and, for the first time, Miki must play by the rules. He has no choice but to enter the local talent show - and the rest is rock 'n' roll history.

Trivia

The most difficult thing during the casting process was finding the right actor for the role of Röné. Many actors were invited to the casting, and in the last round Zoltán Schmied, Zsolt Nagy, Dávid Csányi, Csaba Zöld, Marcell Miklós, Zoltán Miller, Bálint Adorjáni were screen-tested with the eventual winner Tamás Szabó Kimmel (Miki).

Great story, great directing, great acting - I guarantee you'll enjoy it
13 July 2009 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

Well, I have to say that this movie is amazing! (compared to other Hungarian movies ... ) The film is not only a really great comedy, but also gives an insight into the life of the 60's (in Hungary). Furthermore, the music makes it so much better!! We all know that the story is about a musician, Miklós Fenyo, who has lived in America, but his family had to move back to Hungary. I also must mention the actors, mainly Szabó Kimmel Tamás, who played so well. In my opinion, this comedy/musical contains everything what the genre requires; from the house party to the love. All in all, I really enjoyed every single part of the movie. That's why, I recommend it anyone, whatever age you are if you need distraction.

Well done ;)
