This colorful documentary chronicles the events of the 1968 Winter Olympics in France. The events made international celebrities of skater Peggy Fleming and skier Jean-Claude Killy for their gold-medal performances. The camera accurately catches the speed of bobsleds and downhill racers and ski jumpers as they race for the gold. President Charles DeGaulle is shown observing the action over 13 days, which saw France earn the best performance to date in the winter games.Written by
This is not an official film of the 1968 Winter Olympic Games held in Grenoble, France. It is documentary more about the people of Grenoble and the impact of the Olympics during the 13 days the event was held. See more »
More of a behind the scenes look than anything else
There were two documentaries made of the 1968 Winter Olympics: Snows of Grenoble (which was the official documentary) and this one, which was a promotional movie sponsored by Coca-Cola. I'm assuming that the film makers did not have the same access, because there is more behind the scenes footage than there is of the competitions. The opening ceremony (and the preparations leading up to them) alone takes up almost a quarter of the movie. There are lots of shots of athletes relaxing and eating, often with a Coke. There is also footage of related cultural events, such as a modern dance recital and a rock concert featuring (I believe) Johnny Hallyday. It's an interesting movie but anyone who is only interested in the athletic aspect of the Olympics which be better off just watching Snows of Grenoble.
