THE PERFECT SHOT covers the story of Nowitzki's rise to the peaks of fame starting off at one of Germany's regional basketball leagues. It's the story of the fascinating relationship with Holger Geschwindner, his discoverer, coach and mentor. The physicist recognized young Dirk Nowitzki's talent early on and, with a mix of ambitious daring and scientific precision, led him all the way to the top. It is a Film about Dirk Nowitzki and Holger Geschwindner: how they became who they are. It is about the unique relationship between the cosmopolitan mentor and his timid student, who made it to where his teacher had previously only dreamed of: the NBA Championship. Written by BROADVIEW

A great movie about a men who is good at throwing a ball into a net
16 July 2018 | by deepest-blue-1See all my reviews

As the most of us I know Dirk Nowitzki just as a baskteball player but not the story of his career. This movie gives a nice view behind the facade of a career of a humble, extremely ambitious and super sympathetic athlete and some facts about it are really fascinating (Holger). The style of the movie, I think also great, a great mix of original recordings and comments from the present go hand in hand on the career journey of this exceptional athlete.

So from my point of view this is a must for every basketball fan.
