Ugh, I hated this movie! It's a crappy communistic propaganda, nothing else.
The old wise man is teaching the kids humanism and French revolution, even though this movie was done after the Russians invaded Hungary (I'm sorry, "freed" us), and stayed here for almost 50 years. So you can imagine how much freedom we had here! The Russian army raped over 100 thousand women in the country in '44. They killed a lot of civilians too.
Besides, the movie is full of editing mistakes. There is barely any story here, just not obnoxious kids and grownups. Shitty music score as well. I can't understand how can they consider this as one of the best Hungarian movies?
Do not watch it if you don't want to be brainwashed.
