The life story of Imre Nagy is one of the defining stories of 20th century Hungarian history. He was the first communist leader to become the symbol of a national revolution, who, in addition, withdrew from the Warsaw Treaty and stood up for democracy based on a pluralist party system. Many argue that the role he assumed in the revolution of 1956 and his continued loyalty to the notion of the revolution, which prevailed until his death, did not clearly follow from his communist convictions and his past experiences in Moscow.

only the subject is interesting the film itself is not
23 October 2008 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

I think this movie is pretty useless. It does not give you any perspective on the revolution of 1956. The viewer does not get any idea on the background of the revolution. The film pretty much concentrates solely on the life of Imre Nagy, the prime minister of Hungary during the revolution. You cannot learn too much about him having watched the movie either, since it only shows brief, emotional clips about his life before 56. We do not learn how this man coped with the terrors of Stalin while he was living in Russia, and that he was an agent of Cheka the predecessor of KGB. The film also does not say anything about how many times Nagy withdrew his political opinion and corrected his former point of view under pressure from his comrades and the Party. All in all, until 56 Nagy was pretty much like any of his comrades from the communist party's elite, but strangely, in 56, even after the revolution had been crushed, he was not prepared to make another compromise, or even plead guilty which may have saved his life. This contrast in his personality that makes him interesting, but the film does not show any of these conflicts within Nagy's personality. Overall this movie does not provide too much information about the 1956 revolution, neither does it show Nagy's true personality, and how his view on communism evolved over his life, and worst of all it is quite boring as well.
