Själen är större än världen 1985
Description: A documentary about Swedish Discus winner Ricky Bruch as he prepares for the 1984 Olympics. The movie highlights Bruch's obsessive behavior regarding his training and preparations. Facing difficulties with the Swedish Olympic Committee, Bruch is denied the right to compete in the Olympic Games. Bent on revenge, he trains like an animal and competes in smaller competitions, ultimately throwing his career-best 71.26 meters (233 feet, 9 inches). Proving to himself and the globe that he is the greatest, Ricky's throw would have won the 1984 Olympics by nearly 5 meters.
Released: 15 Mar 1985 Director: Stefan Jarl Writers: N/A Actors: Ricky Bruch, Rolf Danneberg, Carl Fredrik Dymling, Bo Hansson Genres: Documentary

Själen är större än världen Reviews:

I had seen this movie at John Powell's throwing camp in 1998 and almost had a sleepless night thinking about how the movie inspired me to wish to test to beat the globe record in discus and, overall, think about my life. It is more than just a movie about Ricky Bruch training for the 1984 Olympics, but instead is a very philosophical film. The middle of the movie with John Powell is something I should watch over and over again. The movie is a bit grainy with it's English subtitles(spoken in Swedish), but the storyline is intriguing and the easy but effective background melody is also very enchanting. A rare but worthwhile movie overall, and a well-needed one for the often ignored track athlete in the globe of sports movies.


This is a type of Arnolds Schwarzeneggers Pumping Iron..The Swedish Version! If you are into sports this is a very inspiring movie. It captures the spirit of the war to be the greatest u can be. I go to the gym 5 times a week and compete in Bodybuilding and I got a fresh kick from this one. No training film I've seen has inspired me like this one. This film captures the depth of Ricky Bruch's mind and gives u taste of what lives top athletes live. When you are at the top of your sport its not a hobby, its a lifestyle and nobody illustrates this better than the Swedish Bear Ricky Bruch. This film isn't fancy, its just plain and easy Blood and Guts. Go Ricky!
