Good documentary film
20 November 2000 | by (Moscow, Russia) – See all my reviews

It's a documentary film about hard life of soviet sportsmen. Very vivid and interesting. In 1987 Sokurov had to make another version of film. The original one was too realistic and gloomy for soviet censors. I know, it's difficult to find this film, but try.
