Love, property, marriage, social and individual interests. Which one is most important? The happiness of the young lovers or the incorporation of lands that, by following the age-long tradition, would provide a living for the new family? Is it possible to build on the bliss of a moment?
The story of Merry-Go-Round takes place in Hungary in the 50s, where the ultimate social order is determined by productive associations that shape the common fate of farmers. But not for everyone. Are the laws of society stronger than common sense and the devotion of two people? The film (Merry-Go-Round, 1956) based on Imre Sarkadi’s short story is one of the biggest classics in Hungarian film history.
