Storyline

At 15 he and his family became victims of state terror. At 16 he became a freedom fighter to participate in the 1956 Revolution against Soviet oppression. At 17 he is betrayed and arrested by the dreaded Secret Police (AVH). Now he has to spend the remainder of his life in a political prison, called Hell's Hallway, to reach the legal age of 18 before his death penalty can be carried out. Peter Mansfeld was 18 when he was unjustly executed by the totalitarian regime of Hungary. Today he is remembered as one of the national heroes of Hungary. Written by Zoltan Furedi

1956-2006 - Moving
20 September 2006 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

Isn't it a bit ironic that we have riots on the streets of Budapest just 50 years after 1956? This movie and the fact it's coming out in such awful times, is moving... the movie is strengthening the nationalism, I'm admitting this without getting into politics here (which I don't want to.)

The movie is a great remembrance - one of the three movies made for this year - and also something that is able to show what Fateless failed to show: that if they want to, Hungarians can produce good movies. (Fateless/Sorstalanság was good and touching in its way, just too lost in trying to be good, too much cut on the story in the book and too much "Hollywood" style.) The story of Mansfeld is haunting, heartbreaking... and it's a true story. He was 17 when 1956 happened: He fought for what he believed in, though you'll tend to believe he didn't realize what he's done and after he got caught they've waited until he turned to 18 and killed him. His mother waited for years after '56 believing he was in Siberia...

The cast and crew did an excellent job showing the situation, showing what 1956 was and what it means to Hungarians. I could barely pay attention to the acting because I got to the cinema from the Kossuth Square and had too many things in mind.

This just made me even more serious in why people - those who peacefully protest - are out on the streets. Youngsters are always those with incredible beliefs. Mansfeld is a good example and this movie will bring tears to the eyes of foreigners as well.

After this, I can't wait to see Children of Glory (Szabadság/Szerelem)... that's another incredible and true story about 1956. And these stories are just two out of many, countless stories fate's generated during that failed revolution.
