SINGING ON THE TREADMILL (1974) * with switchable English subtitles *

Róbert Koltai Benedek Péter Marika Oszvald Judit Pogány Bözsi Hanna Honthy Operett istennõ Kati Egri Lajos Őze Patkó Bernát Eszter Csákányi Hajdú Antónia

Two librettists arrive and pluck people living in a bare valley, in order to turn them into operetta characters. The two librettists come up with a plot, in which selected young men and women are designated into two opposing groups, both claiming ownership and intending to take possession and restore a house in ruin. Their fierce battle is anticipated to turn into blissful love by the end. While the librettists attempt to shepherd judiciously the youngsters' relationships in the desired direction, the enactment is constantly derailed. Whenever the characters' instincts follow natural impulses, the creators relentlessly correct digressions, reverse undesired developments, sometimes by rewinding time and reenacting events, shaped into their liking. The Ageless Goddess of operetta appears and irons out the scheme by performing a Socialist Realist lullaby from 1947. Finally, all resemblance to the characters' original individuality is converted into clichés of operetta characters. The couples and their adversaries have been fixed into their happy matrimonial lives ever after.

DVD-R is in Hungarian with switchable English subtitles. Approx. 72 mins.  See film samples for sound and video quality!
