Sincerely, The Rotten Tomatoes Team
A man and a woman, who never quite made it to the big leagues of soccer, now working ordinary jobs and leading ordinary lives decide to heed the call of 'the game' by travelling the world in search of the excitement of the side of the most famous and popular sport in the world that is farthest from the glamour, money and big lights. While the concept is interesting, the actual documentary ends up inevitably being repetitive due to its stubborn delving into a structure that recalls advertisement campaigns or big brand sportwear.
I doubt anyone who doesn't love the game would fancy this, but I do.
great story, terrible narration
Sooooo good. Its like "The Endless Summer" of soccer movies but better. They visit amazing places all over the world playing pick-up games. The movie is humbling when you see some of the conditions people play in but at the same time you see why football is the world's game. Highly recommend. Streams on Hulu Plus.
I liked the concept and the travels, but it was pretty amateur feeling and that was distracting. The narration in particular was monotone and often pretty cheesy/generic.
Anyone who is passionate about the sport will appreciate the message that Paleda has to offer. Soccer is a universal language.
This is a fantastic documentary about the background of the sport. If you want to see what goes truly goes on in countries around the world and how much they love soccer, this is a must see.
Interesting film about how soccer brings together people of different races and cultures around the world. The Sandlot as a soccer documentary
If you like soccer (futball) if you like seeing the world or if you like coming of age docu then this movie is for you. 2 Americans travel the world playing in pick up games, the narration feels a little read and it starts a little slow but the music is great and its really captivating by the end.
For any Football fans out there, this documentary chronicles the journey of Luke and Rebekah who couldn't make it professionally in the game football but still have a daily passion for it. They travel all over world to play pick up games with locals and find out what "The Most Beautiful Game" means to different cultures.
