Trivia

According to an interview with Imre Olvasztó, the casting for Bendegúz' role was held in an orphanage. The casting crew told the children that who kicks the director from behind will get the role. No one believed, only Olvasztó had the courage. After kicking Sándor Mihályfy he was asked why he did that. Olvasztó replied in a polite manner that he wanted to get the role. Mihályfy laughed and hired him. See more »

Goofs

In the middle of the dumpling fight scene Imre Olvasztó throws Róbert Koltai in the eye. Koltai leaves the room, holding his face. However he is seen in the room lying under the table in the next shot. See more »

Quotes

Bendegúz: Sad and strange things have happened to me that you wouldn't believe! I've heard people say that I'm a peculiar lad and others say I should have been hanged at birth. They say I won't make an honest man either way. They even told my old mother to wring my neck and sooner rather than later.

Rural life between the two World Wars through the eyes of a small boy.
19 March 2006 | by mp01-1See all my reviews

I'm not sure if being Hungarian is the key to enjoy this film. It certainly has a milieu very peculiar to this part of the world (yes, I'm Hungarian too). But that may also appeal to viewers from other countries in the same region. The language, the events and the characters are a classic portrayal of rural life but one that belongs in a long lost era. Thus, it is even alien to most Hungarian people. However, most people, even though born long after the time the film is set, like myself, enjoy the film to this day. So I suppose a familiarity with the conditions and history of Hungary between the two World Wars may come in handy, I still feel the film, when dubbed, could be enjoyed by a wider audience. I accept of course that it will have completely different meaning than what it means to the Hungarian.
