A Study of Two Athletes,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Chariots of Fire [Blu-ray Book] (Blu-ray)
Excellent period film about two runners who ended up on the 1924 British Olympic team. One a naturally gifted dynamo from Scotland who came from a very pious family and was himself very religious which causes him a crisis of conscience at the games. The other a wealthy scion of a prominent Jewish family in England who had to work very hard to be one of the best runners. The film tells their stories in a most entertaining way and is a great character study. The story is true and the film captures the emotions of the principal characters. Very well done and acted. If you are into human interest stories, this film should be right down your alley. Highly recommended!
