Desperately seeking…

Well, as well as the obviously disappointed seekers after MILF porn and ‘sex bangla‘, I have been getting the usual wide array of search engine-led visitors to the BunKRS. Here’s a brief selection of what’s been bringing them here in recent weeks:

Escape To Victory – The Original: ‘Here’s Magyar Eye’

Két Félido A Pobolban

‘Két Félidő A Pokolban’, a.k.a. ‘The Last Goal’, a.k.a. ‘Two Half Times In Hell’, is a 1961 (or 1962, if you trust the running dog Western websites) Hungarian film said to be the inspiration for that masterful cinematic realisation of the Boy’s Own nexus of sport & war that is Escape To Victory:

Director and co-scripter Zoltan Fabri, an important figure in Hungarian cinema, offers a new twist on an old story in this effective tale of a POW camp run by Germans and a game of soccer. Rather than soldiers, this camp which is located in Hungary has political prisoners and Jews. One day the Germans are looking for entertainment and after discovering that a soccer ace is among their POWs, they decide to challenge the prisoners to a match. As the star player gets together a team and preparations begin for the game, the team also attempts an aborted escape. They are caught, but in spite of everything the game will go on — to unexpected and tragic results.

(Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka on the All Movie Guide)

You can view a brief snippet (about 5 minutes) of the film on the Hungarian site FilmTörtenét.
