Movie Info

Eight acclaimed filmmakers bring their unique and differing perspectives to the 1972 Summer Olympic Games held in Munich. The segments include Claude Lelouch's take on Olympic losers and their struggle to remain dignified even in the face of bitter disappointment and defeat; Mai Zetterling's dramatic exploration of the world of weightlifting; and Michael Pfleghar's piece on young Russian gymnast Ludmilla Tourischev's majestic performance on the uneven bars.

  • As for so much of the rest, it seems to forget that it is the privilege of the modest art of film to find the meaning of things just in the way they are seen to be.

  • The 1972 Munich Olympics as seen by eight directors; eight sequences devoted entirely to sport, with only passing reference to the intrusion of politics. About half of them work.

  • The problem is that many of the sketches sometimes forget the idea of sport and competition itself, to indulge in ideas.

  • What nobody could have anticipated, perhaps, is how similar many of those visions would be.

  • A fascinating, though extremely ungainly, film to watch today.

    July 22, 2020 | Rating: 3.0/5 | Full Review…
  • Visions of Eight is an excellent record of the 1972 Munich Olympics, a collage imaginatively recording the event from varied perspectives, each with a different focus.
