Storyline

The movie takes place in Budapest in 1904. Two boys gangs are opposed. On the one hand "the boys of Via Pal," the other the "red shirts". The battlefield is precisely the area around the Via Pal. The plot has several differences compared to that of the novel: it is said, for example, of a friendship between the grandmother of Csele and Jano Guardian, both absolutely marginal characters (the grandmother even in the novel is only mentioned).

not the expected
27 April 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

the basic sin of this film is the manner to ignore the book. the good thing remains the presence of Virna Lisi and the performances of boys. because it is a decent film if you do not read the novel. in rest, the desire to create an universal story about childhood, too Italian to be Hungary, to soft to impress, to conventional to not define it as one of films in which the presence of actors and the costumes are more important than the story. and, if in other cases this vision works, in this case exactly the story must be essential. maybe, because it is one of the most generous in artistic suggestions from the children literature genre.
