The Nagano Tapes: Rewound, Replayed & Reviewed

USA 2018. Dir: Ondřej Hudeček. 73 min. DCP

The Czech Republic’s historic upset win in the men’s ice hockey tournament at the 1998 Olympic Winter Games is chronicled in this slick, rousing sports documentary from the Olympic Channel and Sundance-fêted Czech director Ondřej Hudeček (Peacock). Utilizing never-before-seen IMAX footage and archived International Olympic Committee (IOC) material, The Nagano Tapes offers a riveting, 360° account of Team Czech Republic’s stunning gold-medal run at the Nagano-hosted Winter Olympiad — the first Games to lift the embargo on NHL players. Animating the underdog story are interviews with Czech hall-of-famers Dominik Hašek and Jaromír Jágr — who led the Olympic team to glory — plus all-star opponents Theo Fleury and Eric Lindros (Team Canada), and Brett Hull (Team USA). “A gritty tale of courage and perseverance in the face of adversity ... The Nagano Tapes are worth their weight in gold.” (Matthew DiBiase, Inside Hockey).
