There are stories which can and must be told in every era. There are allegories which are important to us because they test our moral strength in every age and historical situation. The musical film “56 Drops of Blood” is the story of Romeo and Juliet – in this case Robi and Juli – which starts in Hungary on October 23, 1956. Exiled to the periphery of the country, the characters of the film are young people for whom revolution is love, and love is revolution.
The varied music of the film, including its potential hits, is reminiscent of the spirit of the 1950s, as is the moving story.
