An absolute gem of a sports movie. People may find it corny but for me it's one of my favorite movies of all time. Of course there are "better" movies but for some strange reason this one touches my heart. A man playing against old age one last time to reach the highest peak, to make himself immortal. For a sports fan there is nothing more poetic than that.
