Even if you weren't alive for the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, Germany, you will definitely enjoy this documentary. I am way too young to have even heard of what happened there, but this film filled me in. Before it gets into the focus of the men's basketball gold medal game, it summarizes all of the controversy and tragic events related to the games.
When it eventually does get to telling about the US and USSR basketball game, the story sucks you in. The injustice is unbelievable and I can only imagine what it was like for Americans to see their basketball team lose for the first time in the Olympics, and to the Soviets!
There are also in depth interviews with the people involved that help make you fell like an expert on that game by the end of the documentary.
