It certainly had its endearing and funny moments, but in a character sense it struggled to breathe beyond stereotypes, and was anviliciously sentimental with the more didactic aspects.

i have absolutely no interest in soccer, however the monastery setting and some good writing and a whole host of awesome characters more than compensate for that. for being the first movie to come out of bhutan i can only hope that they stay on the level in the future.
