    I think I would’ve enjoyed this more if I hadn’t seen CCCP Hockey first. That documentary spends significant time with Larionov (who isn’t present in this film), covers the Tikhonov drama in greater detail (especially his relationship with Kasatonov and all its complexity), and doesn’t go to the same lengths to frame things in the context of a Cold War narrative that doesn’t quite suit the story of the Soviet National Team as neatly as people often want it to.
