A great story! An amazing movie! A must see!
15 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

I was at the screening of Dream Team 1935 in New York City on Monday night, May 13th, and came home extremely excited, positively uplifted and greatly inspired. In a way I want to compare it to Ben Affleck's "Argo" as it was based on a true & historic story; very nicely depicted the customs, fashion, lifestyle, architecture and relationships of 1930ies; was beautifully made and fun to watch. It captured my attention from the very first moment and I even felt like not actually watching it, but being part of those particular events & games. You get the same rush and excitement as being physically in a basketball arena and watching your favorite team play against the others. It was also greatly dabbed, making it very easy to follow & enjoy, and not having to try and read through the subtitles, which at times - due to the fast pace of the events - would have been very difficult and a lot of fun lines would have been missed. I would recommend this movie to anyone, who's into amazing stories, well made movies and believes, that it only takes 1% of pure talent and 99% of hard work to succeed in anything and achieve greatness!
