Mycket underhållande kamp.
29 July 2013 | by kua115See all my reviews

I saw the three episodes of Den andra sporten (The Other Sport) just before the the UEFA 2013 Women's Euro and must say that it was among the best TV-series I have ever seen. It caught me from the first minute to the last. The interviews, the archival footage, the rhythm, pace and music, everything was of excellent standard. The audience get closer and closer to the source of women's football in Sweden (the world?) since the 1960's. We meet the most important women and men and they let us know what resistance they have met on the road. It is very, very much recommended to watch this series for anyone interested in seeing what it could be like to to do sports being a woman. Even in 2013.
