Quite enjoyable TV movie from the era when Hungary could afford making quality TV films in terms of money and talent. It's almost the literal implementation of the short story it is based on. Quite brave and nicely reflects the age it is about and was made in. Great actors (esp Kállay and Haumann, but Mácsai is surprisingly bad, I hear, he himself did not like it very much :), good director and pictures, but lousy music. Its 70s slang sounds a bit odd today, I think. Not my favourite but I come back to watching it every three years or so. Whatever happened to this articulated film-making in Hungary, though?
