This well-received Japanese documentary covers the 11th Winter Olympics held in Sapporo Japan in February of 1972. The film is beautifully photographed in a straightforward manner, covering ski-jumping, downhill racing, ice-skating and hockey. The excitement of the hockey match between the Czechoslovakian and Russian teams is conveyed well.
