The Real Dream Team
7 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an interesting documentary. In my opinion, the title of this documentary should not be called "The Other Dream Team" but rather it should be called "The Real Dream Team". This documentary talks about the story behind the Lithuanian's '92 Olympic Basketball team and it is a real moving story of triumph.

In '92, the US Dream Team is really just more or less a commercial dream whereas the Lithuanian dream team carry with them the dream of freedom, the dream of recognition from around the world, the dream of independence and most of all, the dream of a nation.

Basketball fan everywhere should watch this documentary; but I am sure even non-basketball fan should find this inspirational.
