interesting but not dense enough
15 April 2017 | by (.) – See all my reviews

I was definitely game for the movie's set-up - which is basically just a whole football match which the director's dad refereed playing on as they both comment on what's happening. There were a handful of good moments, such as how certain moments in games were filmed at the time when the country was Communist. The film loses steam around the hour mark for me because comments became sparse, and the last good number of minutes' commentary got watered down to just the game itself, nothing more.
