Delightful classic for gymnastics fans
16 August 2004 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

Filmed just after Nadia dropped out of international spotlight and defected to the United States, this movie is a real classic for gymnastics fans. It is extremely difficult to find but occasionally turns up on television or eBay.

The film follows Nadia from childhood through the 1980 Olympics, and along the way chronicles her battles with her coaches, depression, suicide, and the lack of a "normal" childhood. There is also some perspective on the changes taking place in the Romanian government, and of course some wonderful gymnastics routines. Highlights include actual footage of Nadia at the Montreal Olympics (when she got the first perfect 10) and also great performances by Marcia Frederick.
