Films about the Olympics are rare, yet the history of the movement is marked by wonderful stories, such as the one that is recounted in the film "Chariots of FireĽ a representation of the lives of the British athletes Abrahams and Lidell. The film won several Oscars in Hollywood.In the same vein is the "The man of bronze" which evokes the career of the runner Jim Thorpe, deprived of his Olympic title for having been at one time a professional baseball player.There is also a picturesque tale of the 1936 Berlin games in which Jean Paul Belmondo stars as a boxer. This was however a million miles away from the Nazi propaganda film directed by Leni Riefendthal and entitled "Olympia, or The Two Gods of the Stadium", filmed during the games in '36. Yet, this film was accorded prizes at numerous film festivals worldwide.Finally, let's not forget the recently made film produced by Terrence Mallick entitled "endurance" which describes the life and times of Ethiopian runner Gabresselassie.
