Dollybirds (Csinibaba)

Edition 1997
101' - 1996 - Comedy, Music/Musical - Dialogue: Hungarian
Director: Peter Timar Composer: Gabor Zavodi, Attila Barsony, Flora Kovacs With: Janos Galvolgyi, Gabor Reviczky, Éva Igó, Péter Andorai
Confident, colourful and often irresistibly funny, "Dollybirds" is a cheerful, wayward slice of musical nostalgia. It re-establishes Peter Timar as a comedy director of note on the Magyar film scene and it received the Grand Jury Prize at this year's Hungarian Film Week. Timar was 12 years old in the summer of 1962 when the film's events unfold. Six years after the uprising against communism was brutally crushed, this was a time when Hungarians were getting back to normal - if the summer of the Cuban missile crisis could be termed normal. The film is concerned with life on a suburban block in Budapest, where the local Communist Party Chief, Uncle Simon, starts the day with loudspeaker bulletins about forthcoming events for the amusement of workers...
