Berlin '36 (2009)

In the days leading up to the 1936 Olympics, the fate of high jumper Gretel Bergmann hangs in the balance as it is decided whether or not a Jewish athlete can be a part of the German Olympic team.

Stirring and agitating depiction of an episode exemplifying the Nazi regime's madness and cruelty; cast and period details are excellent.
