Dream Team 1935 (2012) More at IMDbPro »Sapnu komanda 1935 (original title)

Dream Team 1935 -- Based on true events, Dream Team 1935 tells the story of the first European Basketball Championship in 1935 in Geneva.

All the leading European nations came to compete – each wanted the honor of being the first European champion.

But to everyone’s surprise, an unknown team from a largely unknown country made it to the winner’s podium.

An amazing true story of impossible odds, improbable heroes and an incredible moment in history.

The best basketball international film, 27 March 2014
Author: albericious from Zaragoza, Spain

"Dream team 1935" is a trip to the beginning of basketball in Europe, an indispensable occasion to know the history of the sport that the North Americans created, the Argentinians also promotes and the Europeans assume as their own. The movie is a excellent exercise about History, with a gorgeous recreation of the epoch and the game style of that original basketball. Those pioneers were capable of demonstrating his love for the game of basketball, an sport that then would captivate thousands of persons and would turn into an agglutinative of emotions. There are no videos of that first European Championship for what this movie is the most faithful document and that better reflects the odyssey of those anonymous heroes. It goes beyond that the incredible adventure that lived the Latvian national team, the Spaniards or others of those who took part in that first Eurobasket. Undoubtedly, the best film of international basketball shooted to date. Essential ;)
