Just Brilliant!!!, 20 December 2010

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This is a brilliant documentary! Whether you are interested in sports, history or just purely what freedom means and what people will do for it or nations to repress it, it will give you something to contemplate for a long time. I think it will appeal to people who have experienced or seen repression elsewhere.

It puts the 1956 Hungarian revolution beautifully into context. It took USSR 2000 tanks (same number as Hilter had to advance the whole western front in WW2) to defeat the uprising of a spirited nation.

It's also lovely portrait of water polo and what it means to Hungary and Hungarians.
