Hockey Seen Differently

Czechoslovakia, 1971 (MIFF 1972)

Director: Jan David

Every sports fan understands by the word "hockey" a game full of tension, excitement and competition. Hardly anyone, however, knows the "back stage" life of this dynamic game; its demands on the physical and mental make-up of the players, and the work that goes into training a champion player.
