Sportsman of the century is a romantic drama about Teake Jongsma, a member of the Northern Dutch province Friesland (Fryslân). The guy is quite good in his department of sports: sitting at a pole. Teake rules this sport for about 60 years and is therefore selected to become sportsman of the century (of Fryslân, that is). The bad thing in his sports is the fact that matches can take up to 250 days. This messes up Teake's personal life, because he (poor) is fighting for one girl with another man (a rich guy named Rintje). I think the brand of sport chosen for this picture is quite original. Juchum ten Haaf is a charming sportsman, sitting high on his pole. These scenes are the cool ones in the movie. The rest (the romantic drama) is quite poor. The story is flat and contains holes, the actions of Rintje are very predictable. It's a pity, because sitting on a pole is very cool in this picture.
