Fun for fans and newcomers alike
Many viewers will recognize some of the names in the cast list of this picture: Stuart Hughes, Alyson Court, and of course the irrepressible Rosemary Dunsmore. With a cast like that, one suspects we're in for a real treat.
Prepare to be bitterly disappointed.
The plot is what lets you down. Skating is not just about passion, it is about beauty, art, poetry. This movie seems to be saying: if your passion burns strong enough, its fire can melt the heart and soul of skating. That's exactly what happens - there is no longer any heart.
Is that really what we want to tell the world about skating?
