10/10 Great documentary
11 September 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was fortunate to manage to wrangle a couple of preview tickets though the 10.30am Sunday slot appeared a little doubtful!! Decided to get out of bed to make my way to see the film and how undisappointed was I!!

This truly is a great film to see! Fair enough, I have a huge passion for football (Soccer to the U.S readers)and this film did not disappoint in this aspect. Great skills on show and moments of breathtaking feats. Though, it was not the images of football that made this film but the story of 5 young men who each have individual goals/ aspirations. All of the characters see this opportunity as a method of demonstrating to different parties their resilience and strive for their dreams. Do not be fooled, this film will grip you and make you feel sympathy and compassion for the characters and it is a great way of having an insight into different peoples thoughts and ideals. Would you react in a similar manner to them or would you have chosen a different path. This film truly is gripping with humour, sadness and compassion thrown in. Overall with all aspects considered, you must see this film whatever walk of life you are. Trust me, this is not only a sports based movie but also has elements of "rom com" and a possible "tear jerker" to the more susceptible to emotions! 10/10
