Movie Info

In 1977, the Maccabi Tel Aviv basketball team prevailed over CSKA Moscow (known in the West as Red Army), a team that refused to play against Israel. Moments after this highly charged and historical win, Israeli-American basketball hero Tal Brody captured the heart of the nation when he famously said, "Israel is on the map, not just in sport, but in everything." The story of this triumph against all odds is told through the eyes of six American basketball players who joined Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Critic Reviews for On the Map

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (2)

  • "On the Map" is ... like a sleepy lecture during the last week of high school: You may hear some worthwhile information, but it's not going to stick.

    April 27, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The movie makes no attempt to engage any current situation, basking instead in a one-dimensional nostalgia.

    December 8, 2016 | Full Review…
  • While it won't come as much surprise to learn that On the Map ... is a feel-good Cinderella story, the real-life details are at least apropos of this kind of athletic fairy tale.

    December 7, 2016 | Full Review…
  • It capsures how sports can sometimes bring wholly disparate people together to accomplish feats that change the destiny of an entire people.

    December 5, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • There's no surer ingredient for a feel-good documentary than an inspirational sports story, and filmmaker Dani Menkin delivers one in spades with his recounting of the 1979 European Cup victory by the national Israeli basketball team.

    November 29, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Menkin has been especially thorough in telling this classic against-all-odds sports story.
