A inspiring and realistic look at gymnasts and Nadia Comenechi
18 April 2001 | by (South Australia) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed the movie Nadia. I am 13 years old and have always wanted to be a gymnast. The movie Nadia really showed how hard and how much effort you had to put into gymnastics, and also how Nadia got to the top. It was a very informative and interesting movie
