Film description

We watch a dummy national team of Sri Lanka, patched together from random strangers on their way to an international handball tournament held in Germany. Members of the team work together to avoid legal barriers, with craft and forgery as their weapons. Their target: the West, the mythical land of wealth on which desires of the inhabitants of the poverty-stricken country are focused. But the success does not mean that the beautiful dreams come true. Uberto Pasolini avoids naiveté. These are not The Mighty Ducks by Stephen Herek: the amateurs, desperate as they are, will not achieve sport mastery with their hope and strong will. Even if they obtain a chance for a better life in Europe, they will always be rootless. They will lose their homes and families forever. Pasolini's bitter-sweet film is a leftist and humanitarian commentary on contemporary reality. Poverty is the reverse side of the colourful carnival for tourists Sri Lanka has become. It seems that globalisation reaches the most distant parts of the world, but it only touches the spectacular surface, while cinema can look deeper. As Machan does.
