23rd Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
With his creative concept, the creator of this film about wrestling completely exceeds simple match reporting. The viewers have more information than the fans in the hall and can assess not only the match, but also the reaction of the spectators. The music selection (Bach, Vivaldi) also draws attention to the fact that it’s more like a theatrical production.
The quartet of Québec filmmakers: Claude Jutra (1930-1986), Claude Fournier (1931), Marcel Carrière (1935), and Michel Brault (1928-2013) worked for ONF in the 1950s and got together in 1961 to make a wrestling documentary.
