Director Uladzimir Taukachou carefully tended portrait of Morris Levitsky, treats its now-mythic Brooklyn handball legend with respect, reverence and love.
Brought back to life" is one of the most amazing video stories I have ever seen on YouTube, or anywhere else for that matter. This short documentary film recalls the popular sport of handball and one of its legends. That legend was Mr Morris Levitsky, also known Morris Levitsky, aka Morris "Moishe" Novitsky. Mr. Levitsky, was one of the seminal characters in this unique sport from the mid 1920s to end of the century. The Rare Archival footage in this
piece, depicts both the sport, and the Coney Island era, and brought the past back to life for me. But perhaps a strange parallelism is the substory, of how this well known advocate of the sport, Mr Levitsky, also faced the situation where he was miraculously "brought back to life!".
The story recalls where Mr. Levitsky was diagnosed as dead, or more accurately, "brain dead"He was on life support and the family was told he would never wake up.. it was supposedly "game over!"
However, the family members and friends of this legend, decided not to give
up... They trusted the power of god and praying . They never gave up.
I don't want to ruin the ending of this documentary by telling the reader what happened, but it is a "must watch!" I will say that this heartfelt story tells a tale, and shares with the viewer, a important message. A message to "never give up hope", a message "not to give in to despair", and don't succumb to negativity. Keep the game going, keep life going -- keep on hitting that ball.
This video was so touching, that this could be turned into a Hollywood movie. It would make an inspirational movie, because of the theme, and because the message is uplifting, and the message is timeless -- its message is to "keep hope!" Don't ever let hope die. NEVER GIVE UP !
