Szomszédok - The First Hungarian Soap Opera

Szomszédok (The Neighbours) was the first Hungarian soap opera. It had more than 300 episodes between 1987 and 1999. Nothing can portray better the years of the system change in Hungary than this series. If you are interested in this world and the retro-communist feeling, take a search on youtube for "Szomszédok". In 2006 it's very funny to watch The Neighbours. For example, take a look at this professional action scene. The frightening music, the elaborated fight.. As if it had been directed by John Woo.

The visual and sound effects at this scene are also very good. Very interesting that the worker after falling down six floors from a building, easily can chat to the doctor.
