Bolshe vita( Visual )

1 edition published in 1997 in Hungarian and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the hectic summer of 1989 Hungary opened its western border, which started a new migration in the upheaval of Eastern Europe. Refugees of politics, poverty and war all passed through Hungary, the crossroads of East and West. Adventure seekers, smugglers, Mafioso's [sic] and a few young people who were looking for a new place in a world that seemed to be renewed. They are the heroes of this story. They arrive from various directions: two moony musicians and an engineer from Russia, two girls from Britain and America. They all meet in Budapest, in a rock-pub called Bolshe Vita. They fall in love and wander around town, the boys trying to make a living by playing music in the street or doing business in the "Comecom' market. They all spend the summer together in the short interval between the collapse of the dictatorship and the dawn of the new chaos--that was the time we called freedom"--Container
