Going Vertical Recognized the Highest Grossing Russian Film Ever

Sports drama “Going Vertical has collected 1.69 billion rubles and broken the BO record in the history of Russian cinema.

      Based on real events, the film tells about the historic victory of Soviet basketball players at the 1972 Olympics. It surpassed the results of the previous box office hits: the military drama Stalingrad (1.669 billion) and the fantasy tale The Last Bugatyr (1.653 billion).

      "Going Vertical" tells the story of the USSR basketball team in the early 1970s, which has a new coach with ambitious plans - to beat the unbeaten American team at the Olympics in Munich. He manages to transfuse his enthusiasm into the team, and so they win.

      The gold of the Olympic Games in Munich was the first in the history of the Olympic victories of the Russian basketball players.

      The film directed by Anton Megerdichev stars Vladimir Mashkov, Andrei Smolyakov, Cyril Zaitsev, Sergei Garmash, and Marat Basharov.
