This game is not about money - it's about freedom.
22 January 2012 | by zaziusSee all my reviews

Everyone who likes basketball knows Lithuania and its fans. This small (Lithuania has population as little as 3 mln.) yet basketball mad country since Barcelona won 3 Olympic medals in a row which is really incredible.

This movie is not about basketball it's about FREEDOM, about fight with repressors in one of strangest of ways - basketball game.

, The Other Dream Team' movie shows everything: passion, devotion, freedom from repression and power of will. It's about ordinary Lithuanian people who were extraordinary in basketball court and near it. Each victory of Lithuanian basketball was victory of whole nation in pacific yet most effective war against Russia (SSRS).

This game is not about money - it's about freedom.
