Almost entirely unbelievable, but completely true
18 April 2011 | by (Maastricht, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Documentaries are always dangerous. Do they stick to the truth or do they end up being fiction with a very tiny kernel of truth at the middle? Both can work out and I must admit when I started watching this one that I was thinking I was looking at one of the latter sort. Great was my surprise when it turned out one of the former kind instead.

This one basically follows the lives of a number of senior citizens as they are getting ready to compete in a sports event for the elderly. And we're not talking age group 50-60 here. No, we're talking 70+, even 100+. Of course one can't expect them to run huge distances or pole vault or even jump all too high - but they do do high jumps, discus throwing, running short track. It's amazing to see - their reasons for being how they are, the way they work to their goal and the actual event.

It's somewhat of an eye opener - to see the lack of activity in youth (myself not excluded) in contrast to the activity in them - the people where you'd really least expect it. It's a warm film, loving and captivating. A very interesting watch.
