Great movie
8 June 2006 | by fuser-3See all my reviews

Great movie, great actors!

This was the best period of Hungarian movie industry - financed by the communist regime - that explains the missing parts.

It is interesting that since 1989 - the first year of the reforms and the year when the Russian army has left the country - we can not talk anymore about "hungarian giant movies" - the financing of movies like "koszivu ember fiai" is not possible anymore. This is sad...

I recommend some other movies of that period - i would say that these are all really quality movies from the 60's, and 70's: - Karpathy Zoltan - Egy Magyar nabob - Egri Csillagok - Szegeny gazdagok - Liliomfi
