Ferenc Molnar would be proud
18 June 2011 | by nnenokSee all my reviews

This movie is a beautiful homage to the book of Ferenc Molnar, who died 17 years before it was made). Being one of my favourites, I used to re-read the book many times in my youth and it was a pleasant surprise seeing the movie following it to the word. Acting is also good - William Burleigh as the charismatic leader Boka, Anthony Kemp as the loyal and brave Nemecsek, all other boys as depicted in the book. Additionally, the final battle is hard and worth seeing. As a member of the modern "generation Y", I could never really relate to the spirit of fellowship on the streets, fighting for a piece to claim one's own and that battle showed how that was much more than just a child's play. A game for some kids can mean serious stuff for others, but excluding the unnecessary drama of contemporary movies of this genre.
