Free­dom’s Fury

Esquire (Malaysia) - - MACHINERY -

(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.
