The Second Game

The Second Game ★★★★★

Mobil described this film as "deceptively simple," and I both agree and disagree with this sentiment. The premise is basic, but the implications are always high, indeed, looking at even the most innocuous of sporting matches during a Eastern bloc Romania of the eighties comes with such complexities that is always difficult to discern the nature of fiction in this context. One of my new favorites from 2014.
