Storyline

This is a somewhat ironic, but very informative story about the origin, development and decline of the Greek Olympiad tradition, set out with the help of an off-screen commentary read by Z. Gerdt. Ancient history is described in great detail and exciting. In the graphic decision, artists were guided by the ancient Greek monuments, first of all - vase paintings, stylized for them and characters, and decorations, up to imitation cracks. In the film there are a lot of full-scale shots, and in particular it is interesting to frame the photographs of the bas-reliefs of the Pergamon altar shot by Yuriy Norshtein. The film ends with documentary shots of the opening of the Olympics-80 in Moscow. Written by Peter-Patrick76 (peter-patrick@mail.com)

Trivia

In the film Yu.N. Ozerov and B.N.Richkov "O sport, you are the world!", dedicated to the holding of the Olympics-80, there were animated drawing fragments made by F. Khitruk's group (artists L. Koshkina and V. Zuykov). Work on the animated inserts began in March 1980, lasted throughout the Olympics, along with the filming of the documentary part of the film, and was completed in September 1980. However, in the finished film, not all the volume of the material collected by Khitruk entered. On the contrary, most of the footage (of the 408 meters taken) remained unclaimed. Therefore, Khitruk had the idea to combine the entire footage into an independent animated film about the history of the ancient Olympiads. See more »
