An Uplifting Piece of Film Making
25 September 2003 | by (Wilmslow, England) – See all my reviews

I saw this film on a late night when I should have gone to bed. I'm certainly glad I didn't because this tale of two countries is fantastic. It's beautifully put together, well shot and edited. Best of all, the characters tell the story and it doesn't suffer from "Nick Broom-itis" where the film maker is too much a part of the story. The football match that occurs at the end of the film is full of drama and well worth the wait too as the story builds well throughout.

A thoroughly enchanting piece for lovers of good film making with no footy knowledge required.

9/10
