Movie Info

After fracturing his fibula in a 1987 game, former Romanian soccer star and current bureaucrat Laurențiu Ginghină now dreams of radically revising his beloved sport's rules to reduce injuries and, in turn, revolutionize it. With Infinite Football, Romanian New Wave master Corneliu Porumboiu (12:08 East of Bucharest, The Treasure) has crafted a hilarious, typically incisive documentary.

Top Critic

Infinite Football has moments of nicely deadpan humor and some deft little touches of insight along the way courtesy of Porumboiu's offbeat protagonist; but major league it certainly is not.
