A romanced story of Attila the Hun, from when he lost his parents in childhood until his death.

Ive read some of the comments above, almost everything is said, but being a Hungarian - one of the few nations who keep Atilla in high respect - a nation descendant of the Huns, this period of our history always interested me. First the spelling. I dont have a problem with Attila, thats how the world uses it, he was Atilla or Etele among the Hungarians, Etli for Germans...does not matter, it derives from the Turk-Hungarian word ata-father. What is the main problem in this film is the portrayal of the Huns. Just to point out the most annoying and untrue stuff. Huns attacking on foot ? Huns charging mindlessly with swords ? Cmon guys, we researched their exact warfare, strategy and tactics by now, and this is NOT that
