I watched this final. I remember the hype. The film captures it perfectly. And where, oh where did they manage to find an actor that looks so much like Borg as Sverrir Gudnason!! Very enjoyable and took me back to 1981. Leboef is great, but he was never going to capture the look like Sverrir Gudnason did!
