hungarian portrait of those sixties
10 January 2004 | by marcbanyaiSee all my reviews

This is a very significant and specific hungarian portrait of the sixties as we know them, with their rebel youth, solid concepts worth fighting for, while times "they were a-changing". Highly recommended in order to know that hippies weren`t only american...
