(2006) Directed by Colin Keith Gray and Megan Raney
Quentin Tarantino was pitched the idea for this movie and immediately signed on as investor and executive producer. He told the makers they had one of the greatest stories never told. The 1956 Olympic men’s water polo knockout match between Hungary and the USSR, effectively a semi-final, took place a few days after the Hungarian people’s rebellion against the Soviet-controlled regime had been quashed. Revenge, pride and passion are only the half of it, and when surviving players are reunited half-a-century later, you know exactly what Tarantino meant.
