Biographic feature film about life of phenomenal runner Emil Zátopek.
|The movie maps the essential parts of Emil Zátopek’s life, whose performance at the 1952 Olympic games was never overcome by anyone. The story takes us retrospectively into the most important moments of Zátopek’s sporting and personal life. It all connects into the complex portrait of a man, who doesn’t lose pace even after the end of his last race and manages to fight not only at the athletic oval.||
