Great film. They don't make them like this anymore. People's attention spans are too short. Nobody is walking away from an explosion without looking back or having a high speed car chase where they crash through piles of cardboard boxes. And there certainly isn't any slow mo shots of girls in bikinis cleaning a car. This is character driven drama at its best and the fact that its true makes it even better. It also harkens back to a time when Britain was a more confident and unified nation than today. Prepare for lots of slow motion shots of gurning runners busting a gut to win for nothing but the glory. Great stuff.

Well, they do, but the heyday of British film-making have somewhat fallen away from the 50's & 60's in the face of the ever increasing might (and finance) of Hollywood, this was a welcome reminder that we could still make top draw films. The subject of the film is well enough known that the only other comment I feel the need to make is that DVD quality is just fine, with the tiny caveat that I found the sound somewhat lower than any other DVD I have. Once I turned it up about 20%, no problem!

A very beautiful film. It is very interesting to see how were the Olympic Games in comparison to the money greedy and pharmaceutical greedy games of our days. Excellent actors. As for the music of Vangelis, she is divine. Highly reccommend it.

I know the movie but had forgotten about it. Anyway searching through the DVD's on Amazon I found it. Seeing the movie brought back some happy memories of those days. Both my husband and I enjoyed viewing it and shall put it in our collection for more viewing..

Not the conventional DVD menu, which did take a while to master. Along with the film, there was some really interesting extra content on here.

Super film, the one to pull out of the box when there's 'nothing on the tele'!

A good story about a man who stuck to his beliefs and didn't waiver when pressurised to run on a Sunday when it was against his wishes.
