I remember seeing this film on Channel 4(part of the Red Triangle season) in the mid to late eighties. It's a shame that it doesn't appear to be available on VHS or DVD. It seemed shocking at the time as it happened in a Eastern Bloc country and because to many peoples mind the indiscipline that occurred in the film would not be tolerated in a Communist country. This incident happened just seventeen years after the uprising was crushed by the Soviet Union in 1968 and people in the western world would consider that to be the kind of response by the authorities to any kind of everyday hooliganism. It just goes to show that football fans are the same the world over. The film would probably seem quite tame now.
