Brady is an airman shot down during World War II over the Hungarian Plateau who is hidden by the local people. They are ranchers, occupied by the Germans who speak very little English, thus most of the film is communicated by action. Brady and a boy from the village try to go by horseback across country and avoid the German patrols long enough to reach neutral territory. Written by John Vogel <jlvogel@comcast.net>

Hungarian Horses
13 February 2005 | by TrueStorySee all my reviews

This movie is why I found this website. I couldn't find this movie anywhere else! I am so glad we found it here! We have seen it on TV before and wanted desperately to find it and buy and have several friends interested in buying it. One other poster commented that it is was boring, though I must say that it is NOT. Especially if you are a horse person, you will love this movie. The horses are awesome, well trained and the movie is well done. It is certainly one we will be purchasing for our home DVD library. We will be recommending it to our friends. The bond made between man and horse in this film was so inspiring and made you want to spend more time with your horses. This is certainly a movie that we will watch several times.
