Goofs

The film contains several factual mistakes that are very easy to be checked, because there is a video and photo archive of this football match between FC Makedonia and FC Levski in the archive ot SS.Cyril and Metodius National Library in Sofia. For example, nowhere in the meeting is not waving Nazi flags, like shown in the movie. The film argues that the players of FC Levski raise their hands in a Nazi salute "Heil Hitler", but as the link below shows that hands of both of the teams are raised and it is not a Nazi salute, but simply hands raised in the air. At the second photo from the link below you may see that actually as a Nazi salute "Heil Hitler" have raised the players of FC Macedonia. One more factual mistake is that at the movie is shown that the Bulgarian administrative and military authorities are deporting the Jews from Skopie and two more cities to the gas chambers of Treblinka. The truth is that the Bulgarian police at this area is under german control. Factual mistake is that on the carriages used for the Jews deportation is written "BDZ" (Bulgarian State Railways), but at the photos from the same period is visible that this is not true, because in fact the carriages arrives from Germany and they belong to the Third Reich.

Good story, very nice screenplay.
27 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

This is one of the best story movies I ever seen. It has awesome screeplay, excellent video editing and the actors are so natural that gives you feeling that you have been watched already in another famous movie. Rade Sherbedzija is awesome actor in every movie I have seen. The best scene for me is with the soccer game. The transition beetween the game and the coach outside the field is very breathtaking. And for the final. Excellent screenplay, picture, casting, cinematography, video editing. The story is real and the Bulgarian I don't know why they are so anry at the Macedonian that is in the past. There were very evil people in the past but we can't judge the people bye the past. That is why I have massege for them, spread love not hate. Excellent movie.
