The best Documentary I ve ever seen
18 September 2003 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

For me this was one of the best movies shown on the Locarno Filmfestival. It's a movie about the 2 lowest ranking football teams in the World (Buthan and Monserrat) in the offical FIFA ranking. While the final of the FIFA World Cup their having a own final. Their playing who's the worst team in the world. Buthan is a located in the Himalayas and is a budistic country rouled by a King. Monserrat on the other side is a Island located in the Antilles , they are Christ and a democartic Goverment. The film shows on a very special way how this 2 completely different Countrys come together, have fun and a good time playing football.

It's a very good film that you should not miss.
