Classy stuff on history of Swedish women's soccer.
24 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

This is a TV-series about the history of women's soccer in Sweden without following in chronological way, at least not for the first two parts. Instead the filmmaker follow characters that have done a great job for the sport in order to show the struggle players and coaches have had to encounter over the last 45-50 years just to do what they like, play soccer. It is with intriguing portraits and a very good feel that the filmmaker offers us a great insight to the world of women's soccer and the road these women have had to travel. We meet the main characters, yesterday and today and we also get a bit of a feel for the future of women's soccer and what is needed to keep the sport in a momentum. A very good series.
