Storyline

The Other Sport (Swedish: Den andra sporten) is a three-part documentary series zooming in on the often harsh conditions of women's football/soccer in Sweden since the first clubs got structurally organized in the mid-1960's up until this very day. The three various approaches to story are told from the perspective of today's reality - The Winning Call (Vinnarskallar) - from yesterday's reality - Women Against The Tide (Kärringar mot strömmen) - as well as through a somewhat chronological study and insight to the important dates and decisive situations occurring throughout the history showing the developments of the sport - in Play Seriously (Leken Som Blev Allvar.)

Brilliant fight!
25 August 2013 | by (Oslo) – See all my reviews

Saw this title without any information about its content beforehand and must say it was a true delight to be able to see the struggle that women in Sweden (of all places) had to encounter in order to play football/soccer. Strangely enough they won, which obviously isn't always the case when it comes to women and competitive sports, and also managed to create a niche for themselves that seems to groove constantly. The filmmaker(s) did a great job on accessing the characters and theme. I recommend this series to everyone interested and not interested in women's football/soccer. You won't be disappointed, trust me!
