It is never what it looks like to be
16 April 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It is never what it looks like to be Reno, you said it yourself that you did not know anything about Macedonia. The first thing you should know about that country is that anything about it is never what it looks like to be on the surface. So is with this movie. Don't get caught up in the propaganda tricks of today's players in Macedonia, their efforts are targeting exactly people like you, creating false ideas about the past that has never happened historically the way that movie displays it. If you are curious enough you should read non-Macedonian sources about history to learn the real things. As for that movie it even twists the history of the football team itself, not to mention the championship in which it plays. But the big falsification is about the plight of the Macedonian Jews. I won't go far and large on this topic here. Many people before me commented already on that.
