A simple but very charming story of young love
11 November 2005 | by lindelofSee all my reviews

A young summer student spends some time in a Hungarian country side nowhere place with the easily remembered name Hodmezövasarheli... something, whatever it was. There he falls in love with young and innocent Piroschka, daughter of the local railway station-master.

However, a more experienced woman catches sight of the young student. She invites him to come and see her in town. There he soon discovers the difference between the honest love of Piroschka and love for pure selfish reasons.

When he returns to look for Piroschka she is no longer to be found and when he must return home he can only keep her as a cherishable memory.
