-The Olympic Stadium in Montreal (Canada) stands during a snowstorm into the 1976-77 winter season. As we see it, it makes us remember that the Olympic Games were there several months ago. The movie rather depicts other great stories, other than the media told: among them, we followed Soviet gymnast Nelly Kim, who fell second behind Romanian Nadia Comaneci and other stories attached to this 15 days of glory. This movie depicts the events on a human side rather than the glamorous side. It mostly ends with the moving theme done by André Gagnon and played during the marathon, an event which the runners had to face rain.Written by
Greenspan is an excellent storyteller and has the perfect music to match the emotion!
I loved this documentary on the Montreal Olympics! I particularly liked the "Marathon" story line and the music by Andre' Gagnon stirred the Olympic spirit within me. Whenever I would go running, I'd hear the music from this film in my head... imagining that I was competing in the Olympics! I have searched high and low to see this film again, but unfortunately I cannot find it anywhere! There is the soundtrack to the movie, "Running" with Michael Douglas that shares the same music - but it's not the same as this film by Bud Greenspan. I rarely leave comments on websites, but this documentary moved me greatly and I hope to someday find the opportunity to see it again!
