Storyline

Adapted from The Paul Street Boys, an autobiographical novel by Ferenc Molnar, GLORY is an unusually sensitive evocation of the pain of youth and the senselessness of war. Frail Nemecsek, a lonely boy who yearns to belong, worships Boka, the self-sufficent, charismatic leader of a well-organized gang, decked out in uniforms and sporting their own flag. The perennial outsider sees his chance to win a respected place in Butler's army when their flag is stolen and war breaks out with another gang. Written by Leonel urbina

Our Gang like ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT boys drama!
9 October 2001 | by (Culpeper, VA) – See all my reviews

This forgotten little family / children's film is about bigger adult issues. This sweet film is about acceptance of those who are different. It uses so much symbolism and so many metaphors it seems is seems like the whole cast is on a soap box. But it's worth it. During the heart of the Great Depression with a pending war in Europe these issues needed to be raised by those who would be fighting for them just ten years later. Two rival gangs of school boys are at war over the same vacant lot as the only place left for them to play. The writer and director focus on the world as the boys see it and so the audience is brought inside the walls of the fort and the earnest issues of homeland, friendship, loyalty and tolerance. An almost too sweet story unfolds and we get to know these youngsters and are touched by their views. I recommend this film and thank Cinesation, the annual Silent & Early Film Festival held in Michigan each fall for playing it on the big screen!
