An energetic, nicely balanced docu containing all the necessary elements for sports reportage with the added advantage of meatier issues attached.
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.
Thus the central notion in After the Cup is not the obvious; we can all live and work together to our greater achievement no matter where we are from or who we are. Rather, the question here is-will we-even when we lose the football game?
Browne has effectively distilled the events of Sahknin's 2005 season into a lively and entertaining 80-minute feature.
Captures a stressful roller coaster ride during an emotional year where politics brings the usual passions and pressures of partisan soccer fans into even sharper relief.
A mostly captivating documentary that will appeal to avid soccer fans, but it could have used more insightful and provocative interviews with sharper questions about such an politically integral soccer team.
A unique look at the conflict in the Middle East by putting it in the context of a competitive sports doc.
Centuries-old rivalries die hard...and the very thing that unites can also divide.
