Great movie
9 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

I really enjoyed watching this movie. It isn't your typical sports movie, because it is happening before World War II. It talks about a part of history that is not often told (or not at all here in Europe), and because of that it is an important story to see. Great movie, especially if you like Japanese movies.
