Heartwarming and inspirational.
11 February 2004 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

This is a great documentary. Following the struggling boxer while training for his big fight, the film captures the pain and joy involved in reaching for a dream. It's insightful and moving. The relationship between Carlos and his wife Veronica puts this film a step above most sports docs. Don't miss this one.
