Children of Glory will commemorate Hungary's heroic Revolution of 1956, and takes place in Budapest and at the Melbourne Olympic Games in October and November of that year. While Soviet tanks were destroying Hungary, the Hungarian water polo team was winning over the Soviets in the Olympic pool in Melbourne, in what has been described as the bloodiest water polo match in history. Written by

The pictures of the Soviet counterattack on 4 November are highly symbolic, yet they are incorrect. When the tanks fire their salvos, we see multiple explosions in the city in a panoramic shot. It looks like as if the Soviets were pounding the city with artillery without regard, but such a thing never happened, despite the heavy fights. Many explosions occur at locations where there were no fights in 1956 at all. See more »
A remarkable movie of fighting for the same cause in two different ways at the same time...
I'm so proud of all the Hungarian movie makers, actors, actresses, and sportsmen who took part in the creation of this great film. I've not seen such a flawless screenplay long time ago. It's shocking but glorious, full of emotion, will and act for achieving freedom and victory. Absulutely raises a worthy monument to the memory of the Hungarian revolution and war of independence and its heroes in 1956.
Few days before the 50th anniversary of 23rd October this is the best time to remember and meditate on. That's the reason why I think this film should be seen by everyone, and not just within the borders of Hungary.
