To film the sort of The Boys of Paul Street that he wouldhave dreamed of… The first Hungarian feature film to be nominated for the traditional Academy Awards.The Hungarian film was up against the Soviet War and Peace and The Fireman’s Ball of Czechoslovakia, Stolen Kisses fromFrance and The Girl with a Pistol from Italy”.
