Made in Hungaria

It seems as if every former Soviet satellite will eventually produce its own American Graffiti, and this colorful, cartoonish Hungarian musical is pretty good fun. A cocky greaser (Tamas Szabo Kimmel) reluctantly returns to Budapest in 1963 after three privileged years of pop-cultural immersion in America; the communist power structure, recognizing that teenagers are weary of the state-controlled “Pol-Beat” music, coerces the hero into fronting a talent contest designed to contain the rising influence of Jerry Lee Lewis. The equation of rock and revolution will make lefties happy, though maybe not the rumpy-pumpy chauvinism and idolatory of American consumer goods. Gergely Fonyo directed. In Hungarian with subtitles. 109 min.
