Old tale about the poor boy and the rich lord
This is one of the most well-known children's story in the Hungarian literature, the original goes back to 1816 by Mihály Fazekas. It's not just a well drawn, cute story of the poor boy who suffers great unjust from the rich lord, and gets big (and funny) revenge, but the whole movie flows on beautifully selected music which really gives a special feel to it. Unfortunately, as almost always happens with animated movies, it's only best when listening to the original voices, so non-Hungarians lose here some of the beauty. (DVD release did a fair job on translating the voices to English.) If you want to break free from the Hollywood-style "flashy tricks, simple story, pop music" animations then check this by all means. Recommended.
