My Sergei is a romantic reverie delving deeply into the love and tragedy of Russian ice skaters Sergei Grinkov and Ekaterina Gordeeva. Paired in the early 1980s, Gordeeva and Grinkov matured into world and Olympic champions, and the working relationship blossomed into friendship, love, marriage, and parenthood. In November 1995, their fairy-tale life dissolved when Grinkov suffered sudden heart failure during a routine practice. Based on the bestselling book written by Gordeeva with E.M. Swift for Gordeeva and Grinkov's daughter Daria, this 90-minute film is extremely powerful. It is a rare and effective blend of narrated documentary, reenactment, extensive footage from the pair's skating career, and interviews with Gordeeva, family members, friends, and other famous ice skaters including Scott Hamilton, Viktor Petrenko, Kristi Yamaguchi, and Paul Wylie. --Tami Horiuchi

From the Back Cover

This stirring and heartfelt tribute is also a real-life fairy tale: the story of Sergei Grinkov and Ekaterina Gordeeva. They met in their native Moscow and were paired when she was only 11 and he was 15. Together they won four World Championships and gold medals in the 1988 and 1994 Olympics pairs skating competitions--and together, they fell in love. Inseparable, Sergei and Ekaterina were soulmates both on and off the ice. Then, at the age of 28, Sergei died of sudden heart failure. This is the story of their life together, as told in Ekaterina's own words, for their daughter, Daria. A unique combination of re-enactment, actual skating clips, and interviews with fellow skaters Scott Hamilton, Kristi Yamaguchi, and Victor Petrenko, it brings the romance and tragedy of these champions vividly to life. 1998, 90 minutes.
