It is the first question. After so many films about same theme. At the first sigh, nothing. The clash between duty and love is familiar, the performances are good, the universe of soccer was used by the same genre. Special is the rhytm. The wise storytelling. The honesty giving a realistic portrait of a difficult, delicate, terrible, painful situation. And the feel to see something very personal. It is a film who has not status of pledge or manifesto but testimony. About pressure, career, fundamental options. A profound smart and moving film.
