Storyline

Interesting short documentary on young athletes in a Soviet ice skating program, some of whom are barely past toddler age. Kinetic and up close, the doc focuses on movement with music, eschewing interview and conversation, and mostly submerging political and social commentary.

Good documentary film
20 November 2000 | by See all my reviews

It's a documentary film about hard life of soviet sportsmen. Very vivid and interesting. In 1987 Sokurov had to make another version of film. The original one was too realistic and gloomy for soviet censors. I know, it's difficult to find this film, but try.
