So you are seriously telling me you are all gay?
Yes this is the gay team from the south.
That's so interesting. We like to think of ourselves as quite liberal in this village, we even run a multicultural center... my wife runs it, it's called Café Cambodia. It has Kareoki.

Comparing this film (categorized as a comedy) with other queer comedy titles throws off the potential viewer.
While possibly droll in a few parts, Eleven Men doesn't raise even a wry chuckle.
What this film does do is track the fallout of a professional soccer player and his family (parents, siblings, ex-wife and child) along with the interactions in his soccer club (old and new) when that player announces that he is gay.
While working hard to not be political or for/against the gay cause, the player's new team can't help but be caught up in the hype of their new gay player and the stigma it throws on the team.
Not as dry as a documentary, but not as light as an American attempt at the same material. Interesting more than entertaining. Good, just not fun.
