Movie Description

The following content was provided by the publisher.

In 1896, a dedicated group of men sets out to do the impossible: organize a global athletic competition in Athens, just as the Ancient Greeks once did. Faced w...ith minimal funding, apathy and harsh opposition, finding a group of loyal and dedicated athletes is no easy feat; nor is completing their difficult journey to Athens. But the team's desire to compete -- and win -- helps re-ignite the Olympic spirit that had been dark for more than 1,500 years.

Subtitles: English (Closed Captioned).

Rated 5 out of 5★ by Good family movie A great film that is filled with characters that share the same goals of achievement that the rest of the world should follow. Overall an excellent movie with a plot packed with morals. 12/30/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by A great movie We had seen this when it first aired on television. Right after the Beijing Olympics, we were talking about this show and were delighted to see that it had just become available on DVD. It was fun to watch it again. We even went online afterwards to check the accuracy of the DVD and it was very true to the facts. Would highly recommend it. 09/13/2008
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Good Family Flick I remember watching this movie when it first aired on TV in 1984. I was excited to see that it was available on DVD. In fact we got 6 copies and gave them as family Christmas gifts. The movie is very well done and informative. Comparing it to historical documents, it appears to be quite historically accurate. Strongly recommend as a good clean family movie.P.S. - although it is a total of 4 hours, the first half ends with a ". . . to be continued" which allows for a logical break to finish the movie another day. 01/18/2010
