1552, the great Turkish Empire wants to conquer Europe, and the world. The last stand is Hungarian Kingdom, and the castle of Eger. The brave soldiers decides they will fight till the end of their lifes.
Following the partly fictional story of the novel (by Géza Gárdonyi) we see the rise and love life of a gallant Hungarian soldier, Gergely Bornemissza, who is also present at the Battle of Eger - one of the most important battles against the Turkish Empire.
Thousands of Turkish tents were erected. Set designer Endre Szász was forced to learn horse riding during production just to be able to inspect them all, since they were spaced so widely apart. See more »
One of the soldiers very obviously grabs an off-screen arrow and holds it to his chest when he's supposed to be shot down. See more »
There was a time of expensive films supported by the state in the middle-European-area. Like SU made his "War and Peace"-blockbuster (cca.$300 million), his political partner Hungary made him too. It is called "Stars of Eger" from Geza Gardonyi's classic novel. Eger is a town that won a match against theTturkish army in the 16th century.
