Very good, ironic film with excellent humor and message.It contains events from the Hungarian history, you may need to know it to some extent to understand the film. It is about a soccer game, when Hungary played with England and won 6:3. There is a man who falls asleep and goes back to the 50's, when the game took place. He knows that Hungary will win, but nobody believes him. He follows the game at different places: at a pub, at the barber, at a store and so on. You must know that Hungary was occupied by the Sovjet under the 50's, and everybody was afraid. When this man appears, people begin to wonder who he can be. The police will take him. Some people starts to follow him. He gets to some intellectuals' home and tells them that the game will be won and that a revolution will take place in 1956. The intellectuals start to follow him as well. There is no specific end, the whole film is a big process which never ends, but is very entertaining.
