I watched this movie at a film festival in LA. I was skeptical at first because I had not heard anything about it and because the title sounded a little strange to me. I had been told it was "horror" but I found it to be a surprisingly good movie. It was very well done and I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. It was well made and I was glad that the story did not go too far into the psychology of the players. I also thought it was well done. It was really a shame that this movie had not been released in the U.S. I hope that this movie will make it to the big screen and that it will be shown to the general public. It is a great movie that I would recommend to anyone who has an interest in psychology and the psychology of athletes.

This is a well done documentary about the famous Russian team that won the World Championships in 1972. It covers the entire team's life from its beginning in the 1930s to the current day. The documentary is filled with interviews with the players and coaches of the team, as well as a lot of other interesting information about the team and the world championship. The documentary also has a lot of footage of the actual team's competition from the 1972 Summer Olympics. This documentary is a great example of the kind of documentary you would expect to see if you had seen the film "The Russians" (2005). This is a must see for any fan of the sport.

I read the book years ago and really enjoyed it. I was hoping that it would be released in the States but was very disappointed. It should have been released. The movie was very disappointing. There is no action in the movie. The narration was pretty good but was not enough. I read the book a few years ago and loved it. I thought it was a great story. It was supposed to be a great film. I thought the film would be a lot better than it was. I would like to see the movie again. I don't know how much money the producers were able to raise but the movie should have been released in the US. I can't wait until the DVD comes out.

I've watched this movie several times and every time I get a little more into it. I enjoyed the movie, but I am disappointed that the movie didn't focus on the other Russians that worked on the mission. I also didn't find the commentary on the movie to be very interesting. It seemed more like the Russians were commenting on their own experiences than the mission itself. It also seemed like they were writing a fictional story instead of trying to explain how they felt about what happened. The film did a good job of showing what it was like to be a Russian during the Cold War, but I thought that the commentary on the movie was a little out of place and felt a little unnecessary.

I am a die-hard hockey fan and I have to say that the way they filmed this film was pretty impressive. They captured the entire game, the excitement, the emotions, the passion, the humor, the emotion, the suspense, the tension, and everything else that makes the game great. The fact that this was not a documentary was the only problem. The film is packed with information about the sport, which is a must-see for anyone who is a fan of the sport. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has a love of hockey, hockey fans, or even just people who want to know more about the sport.

I've been a fan of the sport of swimming since I was a child. I had never really seen a documentary on the sport before, but I'm glad I gave it a try. I was especially interested in the documentary because I was fascinated by the fact that there were athletes who didn't know anything about swimming and yet they were able to achieve great feats of swimming. The documentary covers everything from the world championships to the Olympics and all the while the main focus is on the swimming world championships. I found the documentary very interesting because it explores the world of swimming from different points of view and shows us what the world of swimming is like. The documentary focuses on the athletes and the stories behind their achievements and how they deal with the stress of being a professional swimmer. This is a very interesting and interesting documentary that I would recommend to anyone who is a fan of the sport of swimming.

What I find amazing about this documentary is how well it captured the essence of what it was like to be a young man with a broken back in a different time and place. The best part of the film is how this man, the son of a former heavyweight boxing champion, came to be a part of the Russian team that was forced to retire in the first place. He still remembers the moments of his childhood when he would wake up and have to sit down on his bed and have to run to the bathroom to pee. He could not even stand up and get up to use the bathroom for fear of falling on his back and breaking his back. The documentary goes into great detail about his experiences with the Russian team, from the lack of food and water, to the training in the ring. The documentary also shows that these young men were a team, and they had all been trained in the ring together for a long time. The documentary also shows how the Russians were forced to retire, not because of their lack of skills, but because they had no chance to advance to the Olympics. The documentary does a great job showing the differences between Russian and American athletes. The Americans are always seen as the top athletes in the world, but in the Russian team, they were always the top fighters. While the Americans were known for their ability to punch the heaviest of weights, the Russians were known for their speed, and accuracy. The documentary also shows the differences in attitudes and training methods of the Russians and Americans, showing that it is not just about fighting, but it is also about how to train and how to prepare for a fight. The documentary also shows the history of the Russian team and the tragedy that happened to them, and how the Russians were forced to retire. I highly recommend this documentary, as it really captures the essence of the sport, and the emotions of the athletes. This documentary is a must see for any fan of boxing, and any fan of documentary. 9/10

I saw this film at the Cannes Film Festival in 2006, and it was one of the most amazing movies I have ever seen. It was a story about the Russian Five, a group of athletes who won the Olympic gold medal in 1976, and were imprisoned for five years in the Soviet Union. The movie was very moving and made me think about what my life would be like if I had been a Russian in that time. The movie also made me think about the Olympics, about how much these Olympics are worth, and how it is a way to change the world. It was very interesting and I would recommend this film to everyone. It's a must see for anyone who loves sports.

I have seen a number of Russian movies and the Russian Five is my favorite of all. I enjoyed it very much and it was very entertaining. This is a great movie for anyone who likes sports. It is an excellent look at what the Russians do to their athletes. The athletes are subjected to all kinds of things like the stress of training and the weight of the country. The fact that the Russian athletes train for 3 months of the year is quite shocking and that is why I enjoyed this movie. I believe that this movie will be a great film for people who want to learn more about Russia and the athletes.

While I would recommend this film to all sports fans, I would also recommend it to anyone who has a passion for the sport of wrestling. For those who don't know, there is a great deal of controversy surrounding the sport. The Russians are believed to have invented the sport and are the only ones that have won World Championships. The sport is very violent, and some people argue that it is an Olympic sport. It's a fascinating story, but it also has a lot of issues. The film is a must see for anyone interested in the sport, but I would also recommend it to anyone interested in the history of the sport. It has an interesting plot, but it also has some inaccuracies. I also thought that the film had some good music, but it was not in the top ten. Overall, I would give it a 9/10. It is a very interesting documentary, but it also has some inaccuracies.

This documentary is well worth watching. The footage is of the highest quality, and the subject matter is something you wouldn't expect to see on the news. The fact that this is the only documentary on the subject, makes it even more powerful. The filmmakers, as well as the subjects, have done a great job of keeping the film as unbiased as possible, and they have avoided sensationalism. While there are many viewpoints on the subject, it is clear that there is a need to understand why this happened. If you are interested in the topic, this is a must see.

When I first heard about the Russian Five, I thought it was an interesting topic to explore. The filmmakers followed the progress of the case and the investigation of the investigation. They interviewed various people from the case. The results of the investigation were great. The only problem was that they didn't really go into much detail. They focused on a couple of key witnesses, and that was really the only thing they had to go on. If they had gone into more detail, it would have made the film more interesting. They didn't really go into the main story of the case, which was just a couple of witnesses who made a big mistake. But the filmmakers did a good job of explaining the case, and I think it was the best they could have done. I really liked the investigation, and I think the film was well done. I thought the film was better than I thought it would be. It was a very interesting film and I think it was the best they could do.

I watched this film on the second day of its release, and I am still thinking about it. It was one of the most powerful documentaries I have ever seen. The film is about the Sochi Winter Olympics and what happens when a small group of people attempt to take on the world's greatest sport. It is the story of the Russian five, a group of people who attempt to take on the Winter Olympics. The film is full of action and action sequences. The film is a powerful piece of filmmaking and is a must see for anyone interested in sports. The story is based on the real life story of the five, and the story is told in a very accurate manner. I was very impressed with the movie, and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in sports.

The Russian Five is a great documentary about the Russian Ice Hockey team of the 1980's, it's an interesting and entertaining film that is great for hockey fans. The documentary tells the story of the team and the history of the team as well as showing the players and coaches as they live and train in the gym. The film has a great voice over narration by Michael Oliver, who was the coach of the team and also the coach of the 1980's US Olympic team. The documentary is very well done and is definitely worth a watch. The DVD has an great bonus feature, which includes interviews with all the players and coaches. The film is definitely a great documentary for hockey fans, it tells the story of the team and the history of the team as well as showing the players and coaches as they live and train in the gym.
