SUPERIOR MAGNIFICENT MARVELOUS OUTSTANDING EXTRAORDINARY ENTHRALLING UNFORGETTABLE
17 July 2002 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

I remember this film from years ago. At the time of this films television release "The Wizard of Oz" ruled my life because it was so magical. I also loved ice skating because it was such a fascinating and different sport (or a particular category in "Around The World Skating"). When I heard about this I was so excited. I thought I would love it but instead I WAS COMPLETELY ENTHRALLED. After this film I fell in love with Oksana Baiul. We taped it but I do not know where the copy is. The film would be AMAZING on DVD. If you love ice skating and "The Wizard of Oz" anything (films or books) this will be your favorite film. "I COMPLETELY RECOMMEND THIS MASTERPIECE".
