Gholemreza Takhti
24 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I hope this film gets finished - Takhti was not only the greatest wrestler in Iran and a national hero there he was probably the most iconic individual sportsman in the history of the world.

His life story should be made available for everyone to see. I would hope that versions with subtitles eventually will be made - just as they were with Persepolis so more can learn about this great and loving man who had his life cut short.

Working for sportsmanship and democracy and living up to the standards of a true practitioner of the classic art of Varzesh-e Pahlavani the "sport of heroes" just as the Shahnameh Pahlavi Rostam.

The hardest part of will of course be 40 years after the fact sifting through the evidence to discover the facts behind what happened to him and the theories. it is taken for granted that SAVAK the secret police of the Shah ended his life but there are other possibilities including suicide that can not be discounted.
