Excellent!
30 July 2013 | by nyt214See all my reviews

Great story about the history of women's football in Sweden. The documentaries move forward all the way through as if you were on a journey for over two hours in total. And what a journey these fighting women have had. From the beginning to the end they have met resistance around every corner and it sure seems it has made them stronger in their pursuit of playing football on the same terms as the their male counterparts. The series is in three chapters of different and free approaches, which in my opinion makes it even stronger, to the subject matter. The last chapter Leken som blev allvar is the only chronological chapter. The part where one will get an idea of the story from the beginning to the end. Truly, truly recommended documentary series.
