An interesting document drama

I must admit that I had never heard of this man who was a high Olympic Committee executive; a man who did much for the sport and Olympics in particular. What is very annoying here is that the editing mixes present moments and flashbacks in such a way that you finally don't know in what era you actually are. The film focuses on his personal life as well. It also emphasizes the way he fought to maintain the Olympics games in Berlin against the other executives's will to cancel the games because of Hitler's rise to power in Germany. He also fought to maintain the Olympic games as an amateur movement, and not a professional one where athletes earn money. Well, I learned lot in this TV movie, so far it is faithful to actual events. It could have never been made for big screen audiences, for sure. That's why I crave so much for such TV material. and the acting is also so effective.
