I think that was a foul... let be get another beer
22 April 2021 | by guisreisSee all my reviews

Mixing live action scenes with a quite original (and brutal dark comedy) animation and smart edition with football pictures, this is an acidic Czech film that makes fun with the recurrent brutality in that sport and the way men deal with it. Also the ritual of supporting, drinking beer, eating anything, appears in this innovative film. Not only it worth for the competent animation but also for the gags.
