This was one of the most dramatic ice skating documentaries I have ever seen. It charts Torvill and Dean's come-back in 1994. You get to see Jayne getting her hair done, the costume fittings, and the tears from practice. It shows them on talk shows and at-home with their signifigant others.

There is a great interview with Robin Cousins where he talks about how exacting Jayen and Christopher are before a show, even lining up their skate guards.

There is the happiness of winning the Euros against the evil Grishuk and Platov and the agony of coming 3rd at the Olympics. They take it in stride. There is also great camera-work throughout their performances-- and it really works to build suspense even though you know the outcome.

I know a lot of people were upset at how intense Chris was in the practice and how upset Jayne got..but that's real life. You got to get it done. I don't envy Jayne for having to work with him all the time, but you know-- you gotta make sacrifices to best the best ice dancers of all time.
