Alas, the Hungarians were not so lucky: only a year later they were fighting the Soviet army tanks in the streets of Budapest.
You know I'm not sure if any director has tackled the actual battle for Hungary during '56. I thought Szabo, the Hungarian director of Redl, would do it but he hasn't.
Thanks for the links....Soemthing tells me that revolution has been hard to put to the screen perhaps for the politics of it (today's and yesterday's) and it could be still raw in Hungarian society.
My Colonel Redl dvd has now arrived. I'm looking forward to watching it over the Christmas holiday.
