Hahó, Öcsi! (1971) AKA Hi Junior!


In the mad morning rush, five-year-old Junior is constantly underfoot, then for a little nothing his father flies into a temper and as punishment Junior is sent to the bathroom for a few minutes. During this period of solitary confinement the boy’s imagination is let loose and a whole story begins to take shape in his mind in which finally he forgives the adults who are angry at him for no reason whatsoever. György Palásthy’s classical family movie looks as though it was made directly for the retro-wave of the future: from the bagged milk to the bubbling coffee-maker, everything is included that was part of everyday life from decades earlier while it takes us on a colourful trip back in time through the streets of seventies Budapest.

    I am Sumona from Bangladesh. I had been looking for this movie for many years. And I am so happy that I have found it after so many years of searching. I saw it in our TV when I was a kid. I think may be during children film festival or something. It was one of my favourite. I wanted to show it to our juniors and now I think I can do it, I have time. This is one of the best children movie I have ever seen.
