Soccer as you have rarely seen it...
15 March 2019 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

This is a true compelling little movie about football - I mean european football, soccer - and mainly everything around the matches. Players, supporters, trainers and managers. Not the usual things whch you can expect or be afraid of concerning clichés. The director was raised in that setting of petty football clubs and their atmosphere. But it is not question here of high scale soccer, but instead small teams and championships; that's the most interesting. Audiences can find something familiar in this feature, something whch they can fell close to. The main character is very touching, giving much from himself for the others. Also a kind of losers story. I love that. No super heroes in thi so moving tale, though not a masterpiece. Who cares? Just enjoy.
