Storyline

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.

could have been a little better
24 October 2004 | by prsphneSee all my reviews

No question this film is visually beautiful, historically authentic and the theme itself is dealt with humanly and with much humility. Jan Nowicki was a truly authentic Nagy Imre and I guess he will be praised much for this role not only in Hungary. However, I find it quite sad that some of the dialogues were extremely constrained and artificial. Mácsai's part is totally unrealistic for instance, not to mention the parts of the grandchildren (brrr...). The whole project is so important to so many in Hungary that Mészáros Márta (an otherwise excellent director) should have had a little more attention in accuracy and authenticity in the dialogues as well. (My feeling is that Jancsó shouldn't have been allowed close to the script.)
