Storyline

The movie takes place in Budapest in 1904. Two boys gangs are opposed. On the one hand "the boys of Via Pal," the other the "red shirts". The battlefield is precisely the area around the Via Pal. The plot has several differences compared to that of the novel: it is said, for example, of a friendship between the grandmother of Csele and Jano Guardian, both absolutely marginal characters (the grandmother even in the novel is only mentioned).

Why ?!?
16 March 2004 | by youwineSee all my reviews

What a waste of money and talent ...

It is not a bad film as a film, but most - I must repeat, the most - of the film deals with events and characters that are not in the book and were added to the script by some mediocre Italian writers who know nothing about Hungary, where the story takes place. Some of dialogue seem to be simply cut and pasted from a brasil soap opera.

Why ? What is it good for ? Ferenc Molnar's classic novel is a masterpiece on its own. Why to ruin it?

To say something positive, the child actors and the cinematography was good and it was nice to see Virna Lisi again.

The novel has already been adapted to film back in 1968. That film is a lot better than this remake.
