This is why I love British movies.
25 April 2011 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

Great movies does often set itself on great story. even then it might not do the movie justice. But this one do.

Motivational movie is something else. But at the end of the day it is a genre. I do hate people that categorizes things like art. But it does happens.

Justify the feeling. Being chosen for something. The thrill of something new. Tragedy of a situation that is uncontrollable. Human spirit is a presence that is most likely a compelling presence.

I love Man United. For obvious reasons. But this one opens my eyes on the history. Bobby is a legend. But Then, they were not as much known as today. The richest FC in the world for pete's sake..

I love the movie. The acting is Humanic. No overacting even in corny moments. I do hope more British movies follows suit and with more publicity.
