inspiring and a terrific commentary of heroes under Soviet oppression. We forget how miserable life was in USSR times and this success story underscored by sports magic is a must-see.

Great, heartwrenching documentary about the Lithuanian basketball stars and how they endured everything in their rise to the top. Great for sports and non-sports fans, alike. An inspiring, feel-good story.

Great documentary about the struggle for freedom in our time and the impact of what life in the USSR was really like. Putin, take note: these folks don't want you back. Of course, most Russians don't either. Also, a treatise on the "beautiful game" that hoops once was when it took a team to win.
