Koen De Graeve,
Flemish greater Brussels grocer Bert transferred his true passion, aiming for the national football (soccer) team, missed due to a knee injury, to his eager son Gilles (12), whom he coaches tirelessly. Excessive anger at the referee during the match when a scout may select Gilles for the provincial team, a crucial step, proves fatal for Bert's heart. Gilles is frustrated that both the grocery shop and his mother gradually are taken over by football-ignorant accountant Joris and imagines still being coached by father. His own foot injury will either delay his ambition at a crucial or may end it altogether if not treated properly.Written by
A foreign film about a boy who wants to play professional soccer
We (my twin and I) have seen many foreign (being from America) films, and this one is one of the better films we've seen. The acting is wonderful and the story line is easy to understand (for those of us who do not understand the other languages).
The film has plenty of fun and exciting scenes to keep you interested. It also has enough drama and connection to the characters to keep you watching.
It would be a great experience to sit down and watch this great family film.
Even if one did not think the film to be great, it would be well worth watching just to see Ilya Van Malderghem!
