Usually any attempt to capture a moment in Canadian history ends up being ruined by changing the story to satisfy the demands of Canada's so called 'elite'. Sanitized, dramatized, re-written to suit today's standards, we end up with a wash-out version, usually on the CBC. Not this time. Here is an excellent film that captures the spirit and excitement of the Canadian men's downhill ski team of the late 70's. Suddenly we became a respected power in a European dominated sport and most of us were more then happy to jump on the bandwagon. The film accurately portrays the team's hard fought wins and rising profile along with a excellent sound track to boot. If you get a chance to see it, you'll understand exactly why and where the term 'Crazy Canuck' came from.
