Chariots of Fire
A stage for friendly competition. Cross & Charleson are two different runners striving for victory at the 1924 Olmypics, Holm was nominated for an Oscar as Cross' trainer. Won four Oscars including Best Picture, Best Original screenplay, Best Costume design and for Vangelis' iconic score. A triumphant and empowering film. I give it a 4.5/5.
Chariots of Fire - A truly superb film
What a simply beautiful movie. It has the grace, charm, and elegance that you rarely see in film. I love watching the dichotomy of the two main characters and what their passion reveals in reaching the 1924 Olympics. The final race sequence is especially moving. For me it is the best film ever made in the latter 20th century - I can watch this one over, and over again.

Never in the history of mankind has so much Herringbone tweed been on display. The casting call for men actors for this movie must have required distinguished noses. The British can grow them better than any other. This also brings an heightened sense of pretensiousness.

This is a great movie, worthy of having won best picture. Acting is superb and the score is fantastic.
Chariots of Fire (1981)

This is certainly one of the blandest of the best picture winners. It's a good story with fine acting, good production values, subtly directed. But it just isn't best picture material. The period detail and flavor is commendable.
In the new 2-disc DVD, there is outfootage of an actress who plays the girlfriend of Eric Liddell. Does any one know her name? I don't think she is listed in the credits.
