Sport TV series about the fight behind a movement.
19 July 2013 | by kua047See all my reviews

Excellent story in three episodes about the struggle and enormous will-power of the women that did want to play football and then wanted to show how could they were. Not with focus on actual games more on the social-cultural side of the sport that in many ways always have been regarded secondary to men's football. Today however women's football is famous and big in all its own right as both organizations, audiences and sponsors have understood the powers of the women's game. The other sport tells the story of the first generation and the ones in-between in a very enticing way and with in- depth interviews and great structure manage to capture the essence the women's game. Very, very much worth your while to watch. Truly recommended.
