Despite the growing attention towards the relationship between cinema and history, there are just few studies that focus on sport films. In my paper I suggest that the reproduction of key sport moments could hide a clear historical interpretation of the facts, no matter if in form of documentary or fiction. For this purpose, I show two cinematographic products on the Blood bath match of 1956 Melbourne Olympics: Freedom’s Fury and Szabadság szerelem.
