A lovely movie that's worth seeing
21 October 2000 | by (Larnaca, Cyprus) – See all my reviews

A great movie about a rower who's cut off from the 1980 Olympics in Moscow due to the US boycott. It goes through all the struggles, physical and emotional, he is put to in order to take part to the '84 Olympics against younger rowers. A great movie with an end you don't quite expect. This movie has everything and is worth seeing.
