I recently purchased this as a gift for my husband because it's one of his favorite movies. It's about 2 competitive runners, one of whom against all pressure maintains his intergrity and honors his Christian beliefs as he chooses not to participate in running competitions on Sunday; thus obeying the commandment to "Keep the Sabbath day holy." It's a motivational and inspiring movie encouraging all to stand up for what they believe in. It comes on 2 disks and it a great "Sunday movie". It may be a little long for young kids and it was filmed years ago so while it is very "family friendly" mostly teens and adults would be able to appreciate it's message and enjoy the watching experience.
I forgot how good this movie was until I watched it many years later.
A much better appreciation for it as I became older.
Very Inspiring. I like this DVD because it is based on a true story. And also because it is about a real athlete.
Classical movie with fine acting and moral message
Chariots of Fire is a timeless story of a talented and disciplined young man who risks losing his chance to participate in the Olympics because of his conviction that to run the race on Sunday would not honor God. An acquaintance suggests he run in a race for which he has not trained, but which will be run on a weekday. He agrees and wins the Olympic Gold Medal. A true and inspiring story.
Interesting extra dvd with actor and producer/director interviews and info on background of the film including history of the film. Also info on the people involved in the story and the actors who played them.
A classic to share with your grandkids. A good movie about the Olympics and choice that we make in like.
