Storyline

The Olympic Stadium in Montreal stands during a snowstorm into the 1976-77 winter season. As we see it, it makes us remember that the Olympic Games were there several months ago. The movie rather depicts other great stories, other than the media told: among them, we followed Soviet gymnast Nelly Kim, who fell second behind Romanian Nadia Comaneci and other stories attached to this 15 days of glory. This movie depicts the events on a human side rather than the glamorous side. It mostly ends with the moving theme done by André Gagnon and played during the marathon, an event which the runners had to face rain. Written by RealLiveClaude

A good reminder of the 1976 event
8 August 2008 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

As far as I remember, at the time, no one had a VCR (well almost) to record most of the feats and exploits of the 1976 Olympic athletes in an honorable way.

Directors Jean Beaudin and Marcel Carriere did a good job not only to show the winners, but also the runner-ups. If there was not Nadia Comaneci who was crowned Queen of these games, there was Nelli Kim who deserved as well the spotlight, and all other athletes who participated in this 16-day journey.

Sad these days, we regret to have pay a lot for these Olympiads, however, with this movie, we remember the great times we had in 76.
