Description:

Poster for a true Hungarian classic, Korhinta or Merry-Go-Round, directed by Zoltan Fabri. Originally, this film was released in 1956, and this is the poster for the 1973 re-release designed by Janos Kass. The design depicts the moment when the characters' life turn upside down: when the poor boy kisses the girl on the carousel. In a rural scenery in the throes of difficult changes lives a humble but promising young farmer girl called Mari Pataki. Her father forbids her from seeing the man she loves. The father, above all preoccupied by work on the fields and prospective wealth, decides to give his daughter in marriage to an old but rich man with whom he does business. Land marries land, he says. This seems to be the unyielding rule of the Hungarian peasantry. But the young lover is ready to stand up to any challenge to keep Maris love.
