5.0 out of 5 stars Comic theatre for everyone. A must see., 6 Jan. 2009
This review is from: Offside [DVD] (DVD)
This is an accessable film for everyone to watch. Please do not dismiss this a femminist arthouse movie. It is far from that. This is a mainstream movie with high quality acting and camera work.

The plot is pretty simple. A collection of cheeky young Iranian girls want to get into a vital world cup qualifier. Those who are caught enter a battle of witts with the young army guards. They endless try and persuade the guards to let them see the game, escape home or get whatever favours they can. Playful as the girls are, there is always an undercurrent of fear and excitement. Excitement at what is happening in the football match, and fear about what the consiquences of having been caught are going to be.

To describe the plot further would be to spoil the film. I will simply say, all who watch this film will get something from it.

Perhaps this "professor" should go back to school -- to learn some spelling!
