realism energy
28 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

In the Israeli town of Beersheba, three troubled teens are among those recruited by the local football coach. There is a youth tournament taking place at the Vasermil stadium. Shlomi is a pizza delivery boy and other dealings struggling to make money for his widowed mother. Adiel is ethnic Ethiopian and huffs fumes to get high. Dima's father is unemployed and abusive. The teens struggle with their troubled lives as they learn to work together.

There is a realism energy about these kids in this Israeli indie. They seem to be amateurs and have a natural air about them. Adiel is the one that I'm most interested in. It may be better to stay with one main lead rather than following three. An amateur needs more than every third scene to maintain the on-screen focus. It's an interesting indie from a lesser seen corner of the world.
