Critic Reviews for After The Cup: Sons Of Sakhnin United
A cautionary rejoinder to typical sports-movie uplift, elucidating how athletics remain a dangerously precarious foundation upon which to construct lasting peace.
The soccer footage, although not the centerpiece one might expect, provides a vivid sense of the game's ardent, sometimes inflammatory fans and its significant place within the Israeli zeitgeist.
Never forgetting the rush of the game, the directors regularly serve up fleet footage of the teamâ(TM)s highs and lows, allowing the rhythms of the field to set the filmâ(TM)s volatile beat.
There's a great story to be told here, but After The Cup feels more like an outline than a finished draft.
Establishes the difficulty of burdening one team to serve as a national symbol of reconciliation -- and how hard it is to break free from triumph-of-the-underdog clichés with even the best of intentions.
