Men and Banners (1966)
During the Hungarian independence war 1848-49 mother and her three sons trying to leave the road precisely designated by their conservative, stone-hearted father. The way-seeking and rivalry of brothers, Jókai’s masterpiece, the cast, delightful scenes give an unforgettable experience.

I saw this good film nearly 25 years ago, and it showed me the fight of Hungarians for their independence from Habsburg Empire during mid 19th Century. The film is based on the story written by Mor Jokai. The scenes were well designed as well as the epic events. The major shortcoming of the film is that it did not show how Russian Tsar came over Hungary to support the Austrian Empire. This type of manipulation seems to be done intentionally, let’s not forget that the film was made in 1965, i.e. when Hungary was a satellite of former USSR.
