I cinghiali di Portici

Wild Boars of Portici

 
Director Olivares dryly and neo-realistically sidesteps all the pitfalls that a film about how "sport makes you a better person" would hold. The result is austere, semi-documentary poetry, which tells "staying close to the protagonists" how difficult it is to keep fighting before empty bleachers against habitually losing. (mz)
