The life story of Imre Nagy is one of the defining stories of 20th century Hungarian history. He was the first communist leader to become the symbol of a national revolution, who, in addition, withdrew from the Warsaw Treaty and stood up for democracy based on a pluralist party system. Many argue that the role he assumed in the revolution of 1956 and his continued loyalty to the notion of the revolution, which prevailed until his death, did not clearly follow from his communist convictions and his past experiences in Moscow.Written by
I have just arrived home from the movie so the experience is very recent, but I still don't know what was the director's intention. It was too general to know Nagy Imre's life and too idealized to know the main character's real personality, tells you too few about the revolution of 1956. I had the feeling that Márta Mészáros wants to speak not only about this historical person's fate but also about others who were sentenced and killed after the revolution. But Nagy Imre is not a good sample for this as he was handled specially in the prison as the former prime minister. I think Jan Nowicki played great just like many others in this movie but you may find some very bad performances also. The picture is really beautiful and always match to the actual sequences which change very often and fast.
