Good movie for fans of chess
10 July 2006 | by tmmaurerSee all my reviews

This is an interesting movie for those who are chess fans. It is somewhat dated now.

It deals with the world of professional chess circa 1981 - before the fall of the Soviet Union. Good features regarding a younger Fischer and a good set of scenes regarding the circumstances around the championship match between Karpov and Korchnoi in Meran in 1981.

If you are a chess player, you will really enjoy the scenes of the world class players playing at Lone Pine (a tournament that no longer exists) and the history of chess as portrayed in the film. If you are not player, this will probably not mean much to you.

Definitely a low cost documentary but you can tell it was made with a love of the game.
