Critic Reviews for Children of Glory
The sports-movie clichés and war-movie clichés go together like oil and water polo, but there's no denying the power of this inspiring (mostly) true story.
A Hollywood-friendly version of these tragic events, with the star water polo player Karcsi (Ivan Fenyo) forced to choose between possible Olympic glory and his loyalty to student revolutionary girlfriend Viki (Kata Dobo).
Legendary screenwriter Joe Eszterhas brings his sledgehammer touch to this heartfelt movie about Hungary, the embattled country of his forebears.
The 1956 Hungarian Revolution is the setting for this enjoyable drama in which love triumphs over evil.
Audience Reviews for Children of Glory
Well, some Hungary history combined with legend at the Olympic games. It is not too bad considering the angle the story was told and the effort they made to show the agony and hope of a nation. The Olympicis never meant to be centred around politics, but it has always been, sad enough...
Interesting foreign film but definately worth a peek if foreign sports films could give you have nice evening.
Not the film I was expecting, but none the less engrossing. Most of the action takes place outside of Water Polo, but solid characterisation and real life tragedy ensures that the film doesnt go off the rails. A fascinating step into a little discussed area of WWII history.
