As a person of French descent as well as French Canadian this movie was the best sports movie i've ever seen better than Raging Bull i almost cried tears of heartfelt pride Maurice Richard is a cultural icon he allowed us to hold our heads really high and like Jackie Robinson he sparked a cultural revolution for Le Quebecois after years OF racial prejudice he was like a burning flame in the darkest of places

for us he was our beacon from humble beginnings he rose to greatness so we to are able to rise

i can't really remember a time i didn't know about him and his legacy and what he meant to us as french people especially the riots of march 17th 1955 in Montreal and through out the Quebec province
