Flick Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Very good true story, some humour, a "feel good" movie.

With moments of pathos and humour, this film had an extra dimension being based as it was on a true story. Our varied audience enjoyed it!.

Highly entertaining, light-weight movie full of laughs about the memorably eccentric British Olympic ski-jumper. Turns out that he wasn't as daft as he looked.
