for the love of the game
14 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

It's 2002. With the World Cup being played in Japan, another match is being played between the two lowest ranked teams Bhutan and Montserrat. Disappointed with their team's failure to get into the World Cup, some Dutch fans decide to organize the game. So they sent off two faxes. Both teams are eager to play. Montserrat is still struggling after a devastating volcano eruption. Bhutan is an isolated monarchy starting to reach out. The game brings together these two very different cultures.

A cynical outsider would say that these Dutch guys are having some fun on these two teams. However, everybody is so sincere that one can't help but get win over by them. It's fascinating to see these two cultures. There is some backstage drama with the Montserrat team but the movie doesn't expand enough on it. The game itself provides some tension about which team would actually win but it could have been shown in a more exciting way. It needs a professional commentator and an editing style to bring the game to life.
