This epic story takes place between 1820 and 1860 during the Habsburg Monarchy, and portrays the life one of the greatest Hungarian aristocrats - Count Széchenyi - who was born with extra-ordinary mental and spiritual talents. In the years following the fall of Napoleon the young count Széchenyi irresponsibly seduces his brother's wife, and the consequent scandal ruins his career as an army officer. After the sudden death of his humiliated lover Count Széchenyi drastically changes his character from that of a shallow young man into a responsible nobleman seeking to conquer his fate by creating great achievements in his remaining life. A great friendship and a special new love help the count to overcome all other obstacles. Széchenyi becomes one of the most famous politicians of his time. He is chosen as the leader of the opposition, and as such he becomes the enemy of the Habsburgs. However, Széchenyi has never intended to go against his aristocratic upbringing and to be part of a ...Written by
The most expensive Hungarian movie ever, budgeted from a special state found: this raised some political criticism before its premiere, as it showed the government's ignorance towards the "democratic" channels of film-sponsorship. The film will probably benefit financially from this controversy, as people seem to fill the cinemas, which is a rare phenomenon for local movies. The relatively huge amount of money was needed as this is a costume movie about the life of the "Greatest Hungarian" count Széchenyi István who lived in the XIX. century and contributed a lot towards the development of the nation in the first half of the century. The movie is spectacular and acting is rather good, too. Unfortunately the story is probably too much encyclopedical, and the viewer sometimes cannot follow what is happening and why. Instead of trying to show all aspects of his eventful life, the writers should have concentrated on a limited subject.
