A Piece of Cake/C'est pas chinois

Top of page

It looks like a piece of cake, there, in the competition arena, but to achieve the seemingly effortless style of the champion gymnast takes long hours of arduous training. Made without commentary, this film begins with eager young tyros going through their exercises in a school gymnasium and concludes with an exhibition of faultless gymnastics at the 1973 China-Canada competitions. Film without words.
