Credited cast:
Ian Thorpe ...


A one hour documentary that takes an unflinching look at Australia's greatest Olympic athlete during his failed comeback attempt. It's a brutally honest portrait of a sporting icon coming to terms with his own human frailty. Part sporting documentary, part character study, this is Ian Thorpe as you've never seen him before.

Ian Thorpe: The Human
9 November 2012 | by (Colombia) – See all my reviews

Needless to say that this is a must-see for all swimmers and athletes in general. However, I would not want to say that being a swimming fan and knowing something about Ian's life and what he represented for the sport is a prerequisite for totally appreciating this documentary for what it is -a masterpiece- but unfortunately it is. But now matter what your background is, you will probably be able to understand the deep meaning of the documentary and get something out of it. The feeling I had right at the end of the video was exactly the same kind I got after watching Americann Beauty for the first time nearly 10 years ago and it completely changed - AND SAVED- my life.
