Excellent Film!
7 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

I dislike documentaries generally but decided to watch this because of the subject matter. It is a fantastic film! I will probably view it again soon. It was very emotional, in a very positive way. You see how much is at stake for these world class chess players. The footage of Magnus and his family from early childhood to chess champion was utterly unique. So much better than a movie.
