I don't know if there's and English (or other) translation available, but if you can find it or understand Hungarian, this is one of their better films. The cast (like Egri Csillagok) consists of many actors famous in Hungary; the story is classic. A young man seeks revenge for his father's death by the sword of a Turk, and gets even more: that Turk's very expensive property, much of it gold, as well as his daughter, and finds that he needs to defend both against a group of bandits. Like Egri Csillagok, this is a good movie about what's really important in life and does not have a one-dimensional view of Turks like many other Hungarian movies do.
