Movie Review: PIFF Watch: Made in Hungaria

Made in Hungaria is just the kind of upbeat, feel-good, rock and roll filled musical comedy that you would love to watch at nine on a Sunday morning. Hail the festival's selection committee for that.

Inspired by the early life of Hungarian rocker Miklos Fenyo, peppered with dance numbers from the sixties, and set to the background of repressive communist Hungary, the movie relies on the liveliness of its lead cast, the resplendent, sugar-coated comedy - reality has no place in this bright, sunny song and dance genre.

The good thing is, you will not complain, for Made in Hungaria is a roller-coaster ride from start to finish. There is hardly a dull moment and if you love rock and roll, you are welcome to the party. Highly recommended.
