Summary
An epic study of athletes struggling to excel against their own bodies and against each other. Kon Ichikawa used 164 cameramen and over 100 cameras to show the humanity of the competitors-- the tears of the Japanese women volleyball champions, the bellow of the hammer throwers, the pain of the collapsed marathon runner and the solitude of the loser, finishing his lap, picking up his sweats and leaving the field.
Note
Special features include: Audio commentary by film historian Peter Cowie; 1992 interview with Kon Ichikawa; List of winners in all events.
