Format: DVD
Produced by Quentin Tarantino and narrated by Mark Spitz, this award winning documentary tells the story of the 1956 Olympic semi-final water polo match between Hungary and the USSR. By a strange twist of fate, the game was played just after the 1956 Hungarian revolution had been brutally suppressed by the Soviet Army. The horrendous violence that had recently taken place on the streets of Budapest undoubtedly influenced what became a bad tempered and violent match.

From the beginning of the match, kicks and punches were exchanged between the teams and the Hungarians verbally taunted the Russians. With Hungary leading 4-0 in the final minutes, the Hungarian Ervin Zador, who would later coach Mark Spitz, was struck hard under the eye by the Russian Valentin Prokopov, causing a large gash which bled profusely. Zador climbed out of the water and left the pool with blood pouring from his wound. Pictures of the injured Zador were published all over the world leading to the game being dubbed the "Blood in the Water" match. The attack sent the Hungarian spectators into a frenzy and the police had to enter the arena with one minute to go. Hungary was declared the winner and the team, minus the injured Zador, went on to win gold.

The format of the film is standard documentary fare. Shots of talking heads recounting the events of 1956 are interspersed with old newsreels of the uprising and its subsequent suppression by the Soviet military. The running time, at around 90 minutes, is just about right. Even those with only a passing interest in the subject matter should find the film brief enough to hold their interest.

Incredibly educational and inspiring 23 Oct. 2010
By freedomfirst - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I have seen most of the documentaries made for the 50th anniversary of the 1956 Hungarian Revolution and Freedom Fight. This one stands out high among all. The viewer feels the power of peoples' desire to be free, regardless of specific places in the Earth. Watching the happy faces of the huge masses filling the streets, squares and bridges of Budapest, you can't help it, tears come to your eyes seeing the love for freedom.
The message is universal. This documentary, while it is entertaining, should be shown to young and old over and over again, because the fight for freedom should be a never ending struggle, and if we forget about that, our freedom will be lost or slowly chipped away.

Great documentary 14 Sept. 2010
By Horvath - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I was very young during the Hungarian Revolution. My parents had just emigrated to the U.S. in 1951 so this was a very difficult and emotional time for them. First, there was joy that perhaps they could "go back home." Then sadness as the Hungarians were crushed. I had heard much about the water polo match as well as the revolution but actually seeing the film footage from both - wow! This is a really good movie - especially for young Hungarian Americans and non-Hungarians to understand what the Hungarians had gone through to try to gain their freedom. After 50+ years, it finally became a reality.

Review 28 Nov. 2013
By Alex Koleszar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The video presentation is well put together. For me longer sequences of contemporary scenes of the fighting in Budapest would have been preferrable, i.e. less jumping about and more meaningful periods given to each scene. The story is involved, and difficult to explain to the uninitiated, but the film team, director, etc. did a good job overall. Thankfully, there was no attempt to reduce the scale of horror the Soviet Army and the Communists had perpetrated. It was a fair portrayal. I would thoroughly recommend it.
Wow - this documentary is of another order 1 Oct. 2013
By Rita Schaffer - Published on Amazon.com

I saw various parts of this documentary on YouTube & I thought that surely this must be available somewhere in it's entirety on a DVD? I took a long shot & sent an email to someone in Hungary whose email address I found on the internet.

I received a reply & the lady explained that they (the Hungarians) saw it at the cinema a few years ago.

I mentioned the DVD to my brother the day it arrived & to my surprise he said that he would like to view that evening. (This was after he asked me the title & had a read about the DVD on the internet).

Whilst it is shocking & tragic & the reason why I was born in Australia & not in Hungary; it is also testimony to the amazing courage of the Hungarian people in the face of the overwhelming might of the USSR, secret police, terror & oppression. One person from the West who was involved in the making of the documentary commented: "When they fall down, they stand up taller than before."

The behind the scenes footage & the explanations about the making of the documentary is quite a saga in itself. A huge amount of work & dedication has gone into producing an historical but also an immensely gripping & moving work of art.
It is not all misery but is punctuated with 'wins' in another domain: The 1956 Olympics in Melbourne, Australia.
This is a DVD that you would love to have in your own collection or to give as a gift to someone who has a love of history, human rights, sport or admiration for courage in the face of unbelievable adversity & oppression.
Amazing piece of history captured artfully 20 Feb. 2011
By H. Duane Wadsworth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
When I was a young teen in Syracuse, NY, our family had a friend who came to Central New York during the Hungarian Revolution. He used to spend time with my parents telling of his coming to the U.S. I was too young at the time for this to have an impact. In my adult life here in Bay area I have a business friend who is my contemporary and also came to the U.S. during the Revolution....now I was starting to realize what happened. But...nothing brought it into focus and drove it home like "Freedom's Fury." My wife and I see a lot of movies and especially like documentaries. This movie is extraordinary! The editing, sound integration and score are worthy of an Academy Award anytime. The Sibs, brother and sister, are to be congratulated for this achievement as are all the others who have left us with this record and, in the end, a very heart warming story. Not to be missed!!!!!
