Storyline

A portrayal of Ferenc Puskas, the kid from Kispest who became the brightest star in the footballing galaxy. He created a legend in his youth as captain of the famous Golden Team but adoration turned to persecution when he fled his homeland in 1956. He went on to travel the world with his soccer skills and achieved almost all that can be achieved on a football pitch. He was adored by Real Madrid supporters and played for the Spanish national squad after making Spain his second home.

He is still greatly admired in Hungary, Spain, Greece, Australia and across the globe. Puskas spent his life bringing people together from all walks of life as he took on new cultures and learned new languages but always remained a true Hungarian at heart. He loved life and lived it to the full. He became the world's most ... Written by Filmplus

The story of the most famous Hungarian
3 May 2009 | by mr_zolaSee all my reviews

Puskás Hungary looks back on the life of the greatest Hungarian sportsman who ever lived. Ferenc Puskás was, however, more than just a mere sportsman. He was the god of Hungarian football, which in the 1950s was admired all over the world. Puskás was loved everywhere he played and lived: in Madrid, in Athens, even in Melbourne people would chant his name in stadiums and ask for his autograph. He was, and still is, THE national ambassador of Hungary. Everybody has heard of his name. Puskás is he first thing that occurs to a foreigner's mind when they hear the country's name. Puskás is Hungary. The documentary takes us through all the main episodes of Puskás' life, including the hardships of losing the 1954 World Cup final, and having to emigrate abroad under the communist regime. The film is simple, yet moving. It is about a man who not only received, but gave love to everyone he knew. He never let fame and stardom go to his head. He was a true legend.
