- This bird is a good omen.

- This bird is a good omen.

Valera, easy.

- Stand still.

- Why Tanja can play and I can't?

Because she's obedient, and

you are not. I don't want you to fall off.

Begonia, why are you leaving?

Stay here.

Look, they evacuated you to the USSR cos'

of the war. It was the only way to protect you.

Kids were taken away to safer places.

But it's been 20 years already.

The war is over, everybody's got back.

You see, the kids like it in here.

Please stay.

Jose, please don't even ask.

You know, I have a husband in Moscow.

I just cannot stay.

- Jose, will you join us?

- I can't! My sister came to visit!

The bravest men will now run

in front of the bulls.

- Where are you going?

- I'll be back soon.


You'll miss everything!

They are already here! Look!



My dear! Valera!


Son! Sonny!


Valera! Thanks God you're alive!

Give me this goddamn dog!

I'll punish you.

Oh, Jose! Thank you!

Thank you so much!

And you, why were you just

standing there?

You should have taken the bull

by the horns and throw it away.

- I can't.

- Why?

I'm too little.

Big or little...

You can or you can't...

It is only you to decide.

When you find what you

really like doing...

...you'll be surprised by

how much you actually can.

How do I find what I like?

Don't fret, it is going to find you.

Hey fryer, did you mum tie this for you?

- What are you doing?

- And you?

- Hey you!

- All right! Everybody calm down!


Moscow, 1967.

CSKA Youth vs. Spartak Youth.

Don't you see what's going on there?

Stop it! Stop it!

2-minute penalty.

Why? He started it first.

Mum, he knows that himself.

- He almost lost his eye.

- No big deal, he's got two of them.

- Sit down.

- Why did you mess with him at all?

Two minutes.

I was open.

All right, Gus', don't teach me how to play

hockey. Better go and get yourself a new tooth.

Why does the coach turn a blind eye

to that? The other coach is better.

Who, Bobrov from Spartak?

He is a good coach.

But Valera was lucky with

Kulagin also.

He works with the great Tarasov.

Look, here, look.

Here he is.

Who is that?

- Tarasov, the coach of CSKA.

- And of the National.

Yeah, and of the National. The greatest

Soviet man after Marshal Zhukov.

- Hey bro, how about...

- I do not count Lenin.

Valera, look. Tarasov is here.

Look, the two I was talking you about,

there, in the sin bin.

You kidding me?

Ever seen the Canadians?

They wouldn't take these ones

even to play chess.

Take a measure of them.

Guskov is a promising defenseman.

The other, 17, is of natural gifts.

Speed, dribbling, shot...

What's wrong, Valera?

You know, I am just sitting here

and thinking:
am I a fool or what?

It's not the time for chilling out here.


The teams are at full strength.

Valera, I am open!

Valera, here!

I am open, Valera!

- Missed!

- He didn't make it.

Line change!

Number 17?

What you think?

- How was it, Gus'?

- Oh, f*ck off!

Looks like it is hard to score

on your own, huh?

Nobody wants to play.

Gotta do everything myself.

So right... There is an exhibition game

in Japan and I got no one to send over there.

What do you mean no one?

You know, nobody wants to play.

Looks like I am to play myself.

I want to play. I can do that.

- What's your last name?

- Kharlamov.

- And you can go to Japan?
