Storyline

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.

Beautiful and painful
10 November 2004 | by (Baja) – See all my reviews

This is a film like the Braveheart for the Scottish people. I like Márta Mészáros' films because she SAW those dark and dangerous times. If you've ever seen the films "NAPLÓ"(Diary) you know What do I try to say. Imre Nagy was a tragic person who was killed by the will of the Russian communist leaders and by the weak hungarian (also) communist crawlers. I think they had BIG dread from Imre Nagy because he had authority in Hungary, he had HEART for the nation and he was THE alternative for Hungary. The film show Imre Nagy last 2 and-a-half years from the eve of the Revolution to his dead. If you are not hungarian you must see the film to know that we are a little country with BIG righteous-feelings. We has heroes HEROES and one of these is Imre Nagy (I understand it because this film). If you are hungarian you MUST see because you are hungarian. Beautiful and painful film about the Revolution of '56 and about the leader of those victorious and glorious days. NÉZZÉTEK MEG! (SEE IT!)
