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.

picture of a state of mind
27 October 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

it is not a film about a man or a event. it is only picture of a state of mind. nothing else. the silhouette of Nagy Imre, the images, music, acting, tension, accounts of details are pieces of this purpose - authentic picture of a society feelings. so, it is impressive work of a great director about a profound Hungary. a Hungary who can be any other country of Europe under Communism. therefore, the message is so realistic. because the testimony is part of a lot of existences. because courage, sufferance, ideals, need of real values are bones of each society. for me, it is reflection about absurd cruelty of a time.homage to forgotten sacrifices. and subtle warning. or, only a letter from a hero out of every definitions.
