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
As I have always been a follower of Dirk Nowitzki and his splendid career, I would love to write a more enthusiastic review, but unfortunately I'm not able to ignore the loveless direction of this picture and its one-sided view.
A quick look at Wikipedia would be enough to gather most of the information shown in this documentary, which is also quite disappointing. It just doesn't create a satisfied feeling of coming closer to Dirk or determining the essence of "the perfect shot", which I expected given the fact that this documentary was produced for the cinema.
All in all I can't recommend this one, but there are a few scenes which are worth to watch and Dirk's personality is just too likable and his contribution to basketball too major to call this picture pointless – which it is from an impartial point of view. (4/10)
