Unfortunately for us, moviegoers, football is not looked with the same eyes by filmmakers like other sports, such as list, although it is longer than this (brevity was dictated by the required dimensions of article), is, in relation to other lists, miserably short. Some films are directly and without subtlety with football, others are only incidental to football, others are about football as far as we explain or analyze it, and others are about what is happening around football be without this essential sports tap.
10. Shaolin Soccer
The first film from this top is the craziest of the list. As the title says, Steph Chow’s film is about the football played in kung-fu style, or about kung-fu adapted to football, or how you can play football in the most spectacular and unlikely way. What matters in this film parody is just technical aberration arrived at in an attempt to combine acrobatic-fatal blows with the ball at least as far as we know, has not killed anyone yet.
John Huston’s film talks about football only to the extent that speaks to escape. Do not talk about football for the sake of football, and not to stage various facets of the game to remove worth merits. Nazi officers prepare a propaganda event in the center of which is the match between Germany national team and a team of prisoners of war. The training runs as was planned, the French Resistance and British officers devised a plan to extract players from enemy territory.
If you want a movie that is clearly saying that the football (and sports in general) are able to terminate conflicts, animosity, and approaching strangers, this is the perfect film. Gracie Bowen is a teenager for which football is everything. Unfortunately nobody believed that is able to play in the professional circuit, and this primarily because no one agrees that women can practice the sport at the same level with men.
07. Kicking and Screaming
Will Ferrell and Robert Duvall star in this film about a man constantly “humiliated” by his father’s competitive range, about a football team made up of local juniors, about the individual in question attempt to overcome himself became a father figure coach (zero experience), of victories and records about the awareness that parental demands are not quite so absurd and reprehensible as much as it initially seems.
06. Mean Machine
Also subject to violence, but from a different perspective, falls the film of Barry Skolnick. Vinnie Jones plays Danny “Mean Machine” Meehan, a former British national soccer team captain who, after reaching in prison and realizing that inmates are constantly abused by guards, understand revenge winning position captain of team match between prisoners and authorities.
05. Green Street Hooligans
Firstly are the players, team, club managers, sponsors, competition, remuneration, advertising and everything that a sports wide international circulation. There are some fans, people without whom the sport would not exist as there is today, people with passion, with their obsession, and even their murderous monomania.
04. Bend It Like Beckham
Like the series Goal!, Gurinder Chadha’s film uses a complex and multiform reality of professional football to build a context which explores the boundaries between real issue, namely the dream obsession became important enough to risk everything in an attempt to follow his demands. Parminder Nagra, plays the girl who ignore prohibitions family and fled to Germany with a football team profesionsis, Keira Knightley, Jonathan Rhys Meyers.
In June 2005, Iran’s national soccer team held a World Cup qualifying match against Bahrain on Azad stadium from Tehran. Because Iranian women are forbidden by law to enter in the stadium under the pretext that could be physically and verbally abused by men, a group of girls disguised in male clothing are trying to deceive law enforcement vigilance and slip into the stands.
02. Goal! 2: Living the Dream
Directed by Jaume Collet-Sera, this sequel continues Munez’s story which, after a substantial period of training and apprenticeship at NewCastle United, gets a contract at Real Madrid. Perhaps less than the original film from 2005 directed by Collet-Sera, tries a subjective analysis of tribulation through which a player reached one of the strongest teams in world football.
Directed by Danny Cannon, with Kuno Becker in the dream as a young professional footballer grandeur of life, Goal! is more than just a movie about football. It’s primarily about the dream, hope, and sacrifice. Second is a dramatization more or less fictional trajectory of many teenagers who go from dream to reality, from the sordid life get the celebrity world poverty.
