Charleroi 30000 fans, what a joke. In their wildest dreams maybe...
23 August 2017 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Even as a Belgian I never heard of this movie before. I just stumbled on it because I was looking up the movies with Benoît Poelvoorde. I like him because he has a great sense of humor and he's been in a couple real good comedies. This one is not his best one though. It's okay to watch once but don't expect too much of it. One of the reason almost nobody heard of that movie is because they use a shitty football team like Charleroi. Nobody cares about that team expect a bunch full of retards from the ugliest city in Belgium, that is Charleroi. If they would have made it with Standard de Liège it would probably have known a bigger success here because that team has the greatest fans. In the movie Benoît Poelvoorde once mentioned there are 30000 people attending the Charleroi games. That's the only thing that made me laugh. The only occasion they have a 30000 crowd attendance is if they play Standard de Liège who brings more than half of those 30000. The rest of the season there are barely 10000 people in that lousy stadium. So that was the only joke that made me laugh out loud. Otherwise the movie is about a talent spotter that tries to find a football gem in Africa. Not a bad story but like I said not the greatest either.
