A retro artistic boxing doc
22 April 2015 | by tom_mitchell5See all my reviews

I really loved this one! The film was not your typical commercial sports doc but more retro, artistic and dreamlike, somehow more pure. The choice to shoot it in black and white worked wonderfully with the fighters as they were composed of shapes and forms. Their movements in light and shadow pulled me into their boxing world. I also loved watching the mentor-ship of the coach with the women boxers. He was really motivating even though they all did not win a gold, his words to push them to excel themselves in the future even motivated me. I would recommend this doc to anyone who would like to see something different to the mainstream sports films out there. Great job to the filmmaker for putting this together!
