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
I'm not a basketball fan at all, but still found it interesting.
I know practically nothing about basketball over the last few decades. Over the years, I have become less and less interested in the sport. So, when I saw this documentary about Dirk Nowiski, I had no idea who he is--even though he's an NBA superstar. I say this because if you aren't a basketball fan, you still might find this worth your time.
The film is a documentary about the career Dirk. It also, at times, is really the story of Dirk and his mentor and personal coach, Holger. The emphasis of the film is that Dirk's success in the NBA has been due to very hard work, discipline and practice, practice and more practice with Holger. It's rather inspiring to see an athlete with such dedication and who doesn't seem like a prima dona and who doesn't live for endorsements and babes! Well worth seeing and interesting.
