The Soul Is Greater Than the World (Själen är större än världen)
Blood, sweat and pills in a close-up portrait of Ricky Bruch’s recharging before the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics. Bruch was one of Sweden’s most successful and controversial athletes (and was in 1970 chosen Årets skåning), but Stefan Jarl’s portrayal is as much a survey of an individual athlete’s soul as the entire sport’s.
