It's unclear whether "Infinite Football" is more tragedy or comedy, and in that lack of clarity lies something like wonderment.
Porumboiu reminds you with simplicity that Infinite Football is working within the poetry of a portrait, albeit one of many warming, droll moments.
This relatively short film contains worlds.
This is rich material, sharply developed. It's also touchingly optimistic about man's capacity for incremental change.
It's one of the most original and visionary documentary films to have emerged recently...
It's easy to read parallels between the nation's troubled experience of authoritarianism and Ginghină's obsessive pursuit of a perfectly ordered yet perfectly liberated game of soccer.
Infinite Football is the best testament yet to Porumboiu's genius, as he moulds seemingly artless parts into an unexpectedly profound whole.
As a director, Porumboiu's approach is less swashbuckling attack than methodical possession game.
An offbeat gem of a documentary.
In short, Infinite Football transmits something personal and universal at the same time. [Full review in Spanish]
Corneliu Porumboiu resists spelling anything out but the bare essentials, instead continuing his project of inviting viewers to closely parse the acerbic day-to-day banalities of post-Ceausescu Romania.
The premise may sound dry on paper, but Porumboiu's execution renders it irresistible.
