While Soviet tanks were destroying Hungary, the Hungarian water polo team was winning over the Soviets in the Olympic pool in Melbourne, in what has been described as the bloodiest water polo match in history.Written by

When Karcsi first meets Viki at the university on 23 October, he says "szia" to her, which is equal to "hi" in Hungarian. It's an anachronism because this kind of greeting was not yet used on that day. It came to use a few hours later, and indeed Karcsi could have been one of the first Hungarians to use it. The word "szia" had been invented by water polo boys in the very place where Karcsi and his team also trains in the movie: the Csaszar swimming pool on the afternoon of 23 October 1956. The usual greeting between friends was "szervusz" at that time (still used as a more formal, but still intimate courtesy), coming from the Latin "servus" meaning something like "I am your servant". These water polo boys thought they need some "revolutionary" to replace the old-fashioned "szervusz", so they made up "szia", or "sziák" when addressing multiple persons. When they went home, they taught all the passengers on the tram to the new words. People liked the idea and and "szia" spread in Budapest like wildfire. The "sziák" form has been phased out by "sziasztok" in a short time, which is still in use today. See more »
A remarkable movie of fighting for the same cause in two different ways at the same time...
I'm so proud of all the Hungarian movie makers, actors, actresses, and sportsmen who took part in the creation of this great film. I've not seen such a flawless screenplay long time ago. It's shocking but glorious, full of emotion, will and act for achieving freedom and victory. Absulutely raises a worthy monument to the memory of the Hungarian revolution and war of independence and its heroes in 1956.
Few days before the 50th anniversary of 23rd October this is the best time to remember and meditate on. That's the reason why I think this film should be seen by everyone, and not just within the borders of Hungary.
