  • The sports-movie clichs and war-movie clichs 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).

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...
