Great story, great directing, great acting - I guarantee you'll enjoy it
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 ;)
