Chariots of Fire (1981)

Sobre o filme

Chariots of Fire is a celebration of a number of things, not the least of which is a kind of highly committed, emotionally involving drama that knows the difference between sentiment and sentimentality. It also introduces more a than half-dozen talents, mostly English, and celebrates the British film industry... It`s to the credit of both Mr. Hudson and Mr. Welland that Chariots of Fire is simultaneously romantic and commonsensical, lyrical and comic. David Watkin`s photography is very fine, and the track sequences - even to someone who has no real interest in track - are charged with poetry. Though Chariots of Fire is mostly about the very privileged, it is so carefully balanced that it doesn`t deny the realities of lives less privileged. It`s an exceptional film, about some exceptional people. Vincent Canby, 1981, New York Times Four Academy Awards: Best Picture, Script, Costumes, Music.
