“Steve Sander’s remarkable Two Swimmers [is] a fascinating inspirational portrait of endurance and willpower, while the ending is as shocking as it is unexpected.”
Telegraph on Saturday
“Life-affirming…brought a lump to the throat and put many a mega-budget show to shame…with impressive understatement, Two Swimmers turned out not to be Tim’s story but a tribute to his coach Mark Rickhuss."
“Quality television…both inspiring and emotionally involving.”
“Trainer Mark Rickhuss has been coaching Tim since school and it’s this relationship plus a tragic twist at the end, which makes this film so compelling.”
“An unpretentious, engaging documentary…A quietly devastating genuine human tragedy.”
“[Two Swimmers] carries a certain hypnotic power and a sting in the tale more potent than any of the sea-water jellyfish with cameo roles.”
