Mansfeld (Mansfeld)

(2006, feature, 35mm, color, 118 minutes)

The most significant experience of Péter Mansfeld’s and his friends’ life have been the events that took place in the streets of Budapest in October 1956. Even two years after the revolution was defeated, they are still daydreaming of the uprising’s continuation. As requested by adults, they legally collect weapons they find, but at the same time they secretly assemble leaflets with the acronym MUK on them, for “In March we start again.” Their childish pranks mingle with adolescent tricks and minor crimes. After kidnapping a policeman, however, they end up in prison.www.mansfeld.hu
