This is one of my favourite movies.
A tale of two Japanese kids for whom table-tennis is <i>everything</i>, Ping Pong is a warm, character-driven story of friendship, passion and competition. It's funny, fast and beautifully shot, with subtle effects for the ping pong matches, and it gets better with every viewing. Can't wait for the UK release.

This is about diametrically opposing approaches to life. The common bond is the childhood friendship that continues into adulthood, galvanised and tested by a passion for ping-pong (table tennis). This is not `pitter-patter' table tennis. This is the real thing. As the film progresses, there are more and more playing sequences and reflections by the players; about themselves (the introverted stuff) and about their opponents (harsh sentiment at times). The point is that all have a passion for a passionate game (and for those of us who have played it seriously, we understand that notion). Peco is the precociously brilliant, extrovert player. Tsukimoto is his boyhood friend; the introspective player. Peco plays with aggressive and flamboyant 'top-spin'. Tsukimoto plays defensively, chopping each shot with heavy 'back-spin'. The increasingly prolonged playing sequences are poetic to watch. The film reaches a perfect crescendo, when these two meet in the final of a tournament. The question is, which perspective on life wins? Watch the film!

This film is so silly it's amazing. This tells the story of two friends with vastly different outlooks on life but to whom Ping Pong means everything.

It's funny and visually beautiful, definitely recommend!

This film is oh-so slow, but suddenly it ends and you realise how powerful and how deep it was. A story of two friends. Wonderful.
