Top Movie

For anyone who aims to aspire in sport or in life in general this film shows that anybody can do so. The film shows the lifting of strongman and fitness Guru Sri Chinmoy who in his 70's was lifting weights that were beyond the realms of most young lifters. Highlighted by appearances of strongman Hugo Girard and former Mr Universe Bill Pearl, the documentary showcases the possibilities of the human spirit. It was so good the film was selected for Tribecca in 2011 I believe. It shows the benefits of fitness, inner peace, regularity and discipline. Skills that can be applied in personal, business and fitness lifestyles. Highly recommended.
