The film is set in 1994, two years after South Africa competed in the Barcelona Olympics. There should be no reason why David had to marry Muriel or anybody else in order to swim at the Olympic Games. See more »

brilliant
30 May 2012 | by (palestine) – See all my reviews

i know it's a great movie because it made me cry and i don't cry while watching any movie, of course some would say it's not a good enough movie i would say just watch it and full in love with Toni Colette and Australia as she made it the warmest place on earth. you would think it's a comedy movie or a drama but it's more than that it's a call for life and seeking freedom and real love and friends it will make you recheck your list of friends to see who are the true ones, it will make you recheck your life to make sure you'r living it right and for the right reasons and Toni oh boy she's a miracle. just watch the damn movie and you won't regret it, IT'S A MASTER PIECE
