Made in Hungária

ORIGINAL TITLE:
Made in Hungária
Ungarn / 2009 / 109 min
DIRECTOR:
Gergely Fonyó
Rock'n'roll makes its entrance in communist sixties Hungary

Feelgood musical MADE IN HUNGARIA is set in the communist sixties and shows hip, dancing Hungarian teenagers in stylish and colourful scenery. In a time when many Hungarians are trying to get out of the country, Miki comes back from the USA, sporting flashy Hawaii-shirts and carrying vinyl singles of Buddy Holly. Needless to say, Miki adds flavour to the socialist society and catches the interest of young girls, much to the chagrin of government officials. MADE IN HUNGARIA is a charming film filled with catchy tunes and impressive visuals.
