Heart Warming tale of a Welsh Trail Blazer
13 February 2020 | by martin_noSee all my reviews

Superb! I was lucky enough to see this title at a film festival in May 2019. It was not only one of the highlights of the festival for me, but an impressively poignant piece of cinema, that remains firm in my heart and emotional pride even to this day. Sadly, it didn't win an (thoroughly deserved) accolade or accreditation at the festival I attended, especially after making such a profound impact on my personal experience of movie and documentary entertainment, but I am pleased to find it continues to be rightfully acclaimed, and I have no doubts that it will continue to serve as an important benchmark in storytelling.

An inspiring and heart warming true story about a Welsh wrestling athlete, who broke down barriers and wasn't afraid to both walk the line.... and cross it, flamboyantly no less, back when nobody dared do anything but conform to what 'society' deemed 'acceptable.' A hero and a trend-setter for generations to come. All beautifully portrayed and masterfully documented, giving this tale, and its protagonist, a righteous passage into welsh history and, ultimately, serving as the (ironically fitting) 'magnificent' platform to etch both into legend. Fantastic viewing. Not to be missed.
