About the Movie
Narrated by Sean Bean (Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones). Every winter, the people of Ashbourne, UK, gather in the center of their town to renew the longest running sports rivalry on earth. The game is called Shrovetide Footbal and is the origin of Soccer, Footbal and Rugby. Each team consists of hundreds if not thousands of people. The field of play...the town itself. The object of the game is simple: Get a 4-pound ball to one of 2 goals that lay 3 miles apart.
This is a great Movie
I saw this at Slamdance 2012 and it was fun, informative, real and really gave you the sense of family, if that makes sense, The people in the film really have a love for one another and are loyal to the end. Great Job.
Unbelievable movie. I loved it, kids loved it, even the better half loved it.... Amazing history and social narrative wrapped up in a hard hitting sports flick. Sean Bean adds his unmistakeable flair while the imagery pulls you into a bygone era. Kudos to the production team and the film editing is truly superb. Highly recommended.
This is a great and compelling documentary for anyone interested in sports and even for people who aren't. The history behind the story is fascinating, and the film makers do an excellent job of bringing you into the culture of the place where the game takes place. This is one of my all time favorite documentaries. Great energy and pacing whoever edited this thing must be a genius. Watch it!
