Egri csillagok

Good heroic film from the past with some strange scenes
There were many mistakes, unskilled men playing soldiers at the ambush, sometimes very slow scenes, which make the film funny. For example: "dying" Turkish fighters watch peacefully the continue of the battle, they look around after being boiled by hot water and jumping down (at the wall climbing), fake Gypsy dancing for long minutes without any reason. But it was the last big Hungarian film. The original story is perfect with its heroic historical content and romantic events, which would be interesting for a foreigner too. A modern adaption would be a good idea, but the present Hungarian film makers weren't able to do as good film as the story would deserve - I think.
