Amateur football [soccer] team Athletico Greenwich exists 20 years and is determined to celebrate their 500th match, especially the six veterans who were in it from the start. Life keeps getting in the way of playing, just as it frustrates the lists of things to do before age 30 made by the juniors, as proven by the over 30s' experience, such as Collin's obsession to have a threesome with girlfriend Vicky and her mate Sheera. Captain Cass resents his pregnant girl Kate's intent to focus their entire lives on the baby. Collin's house mate, would be musician Dylan, should answer to his dad. Johhny as taken in his cripple step-dad Don, once the team's mentor. Real or alleged homosexuality is a tender issue. Written by
The title interested me, but i found the film to be a big disappointment. I imagined the film would be about mountain climbing, skydiving and other things like that. In fact the film is about relationships, and preparing for football (amateur soccer) matches. So don't be misled.
It also seems to me to be made for a specific audience, the inhabitants of South-East England. I say that mainly because of the attitudes of the characters to life and what is important.
I found it too boring and depressing to watch in one session, so I ended up watching it in installments.
I was impressed by the acting, especially Emilia Fox who seems much too good for this sort of thing.
My advice, give this film a miss, you'll be less depressed if you do.
