Movie Info

Led by the unique skills of Sarunas Marciulionis and Arvydas Sabonis, the 1992 Lithuanian Olympic basketball team helped their country break free from the shackles of Communism. After leading the USSR to a gold medal (and victory over the U.S.A.) at the '88 Seoul Olympics, Marciulionis and Sabonis were poster boys for the Soviet sports machine. Four year later, after the fall of the Soviet Union, they emerged as symbols of democracy, willing newly-independent Lithuania to the medal stand in

You don't have to give a hoot about basketball to enjoy this movie. This is a movie about identifying with, admiring and responding to achievement in any form.

Here's a twist on the plucky underdog sports movie. The Other Dream Team adds rock 'n' roll and eastern European history to the rah-rah mix.

If you root for documentaries with heart, "The Other Dream Team" is a slam dunk.

Adding detailed historical context, the quirky feel-good story becomes a tragedy and a lesson. And that makes the victories resonate even more.

Clearly, there's a story here. The documentary "The Other Dream Team" tells it in a smart, lively, if somewhat hectic fashion.

...a deeply interesting, if conventionally structured and unflashy, documentary ... about the reassertion of national identity after generations of foreign oppression and the role of sport in nation building.

The Other Dream Team is both an exceptional and exceptionally inspiring film.

In an era when so much of the focus in sports is on the glam and the glitz, it's nice to be reminded that it can still be about heart and soul, too.

The Other Dream Team becomes less a simple paean to the triumph of the human spirit and more an admission of life's complexity and messiness.

The Other Dream Team wasn't the 1992 Lithuanian Basketball movie that I necessarily wanted, but it could absolutely be the 1992 Lithuanian Basketball movie that you want, assuming you want such a thing.

Shows sports can have other goals besides winning.

"The Other Dream Team" is a saga of hope, courage and overcoming adversity and how a sport and its players helped a nation rekindle its voice and place on the world stage.

The lack of focus makes for a lackluster Documentary.

This true-life sports story has a little of the same magic "Hoosiers" has.

...a story that should be heard and remembered, because it reminds you that sometimes a sporting event carries meaning far outside the confines of the sport itself.

An exceptional inspirational sports movie, precisely because the stakes were so high.

Quite often the film veers away from their stories to become a flag-waving work of Lithuanian nationalism.
