So Much Entertainment & Wisdom Packed Into 25minutes!!!
27 February 2017 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This beautiful short film has it ALL--a child's point of view, gorgeous music, great cinematography, brilliant and beautiful actors and a surprise ending. It is like reading a short story by O. Henry and watching all the characters unfold while feeling great attachment for some and disdain for others. I have never seen a Hungarian film prior to this one and "Mindenki aka Sing" was certainly a wonderful introduction. It is a film that I'd be willing to watch again and that everyone should experience at least once.
