Children of Glory (2006)
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.
A worthy subject and some impressive sequences, but Children Of Glory is a would-be epic emerging as a clumsy culture clash.
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.
