The most effective short movie what I ever seen
5 March 2018 | by balintendrodiSee all my reviews

This movie of Deák Kristóf seems to be a simple, cute story what is lacking all of valid content, and I though that too before I watched this movie. But it is not a simple, cute story what is lacking all of valid content, it is just cute and simple. Regardless it's cuteness it has got a critics of most of education system on the world, because most of them doom that - excluding the most extremist cases - every children has got a potential to learn anything they want. And this movie answers that if it is true or not, and that how it effect to the hierarchy between the children, the self-esteem of them and how it effects to the power of the teacher.

That was the movie what gives back my trust towards the Hungarian movies

Sorry for my bad English
