Chili-Chala the Magician

Palásthy György

Hungary, 1969

SYNOPSIS

Uncle Csilicsala comes instantly to Balogh Gyuszi’s help when called for, and a little earlier when not. By magic he can present a talking horse, or move the neighbouring houses out of their corners. For study purposes, he even calls Robot Gyuszi to life. The Robot, however, is so perfect that even Gyuszi’s parents prefer him to their son, let alone the teacher, Kovács. In the middle of summer an unfinished snowman turns up, complaining that Gyuszi gave him up, just as he gave up playing violin, doing ceramics and other things. Gyuszi calls Uncle Csilicsala in vain. The magician only conjures for Öcsi now.
