The cinema release of Chelsea Monday comes as the attention for the London 2012 Olympics is increasing. It is one of the best sport themed movies I have seen for a while. The basic premise is simple enough: two young athletes, both among the favourites for their discipline, happen to meet shortly after their arrival one Monday in the London Chelsea district - two weeks before the start of the games. Both Ukrainian steeple chaser Igor Kovlibenko and Canadian sprinter Jenny Matucewicz have so far lived 100% for their sports to fulfill their golden dreams. Their chance encounter leads to a whirlwind romance, which threatens to get in their way of their - and their coaches - ambitions. A complex but convincing mixture of subplots develop from there, leading to a dramatic finale on the opening day of the Olympics. Sterling performances by the two leads, Julia Cole and Todd West. A gripping movie.
