Excellent presentation of Ethiopia
28 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Having spent time in Ethiopia, this movie brings back so many memories. You truly can get a feel for the country in watching it. I can almost smell the smoke and the spicy plants. So many things are perfect, but I guess that is to be expected since it was filmed in Ethiopia. A friend asked why Haile was making a hiccuping sound when he was talking to the coach for the first time. That means he was listening intently and eagerly. The food his mother was cooking in the beginning is "injeria" which a kind of sourdough pancake/bread made from the grassy grain "tef". Makes me want to get on planning my next trip to Addis! A must see for anyone preparing for a trip there and also for those who love track and field sports.
