Storyline

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 Zoltan Furedi

Could've been a good movie..
18 April 2002 | by sintaxSee all my reviews

I think a Movie about Széchenyi would've been better presented, if it was based on facts. I am not saying the movie isn't, but they changed alot of historical events to better suit the situation. Roleplaying is quite good, but the movie is very boring.

Eperjes plays Széchenyi, which is a good thing, since he can capture the true essence of the character. The whole 1848 freedom fight of Hungary was removed in the movie, eventhough it was a substantial part of Széchenyi's life. I'd give it a 3 out of 10.
