Centre Forward

Back to film

Fascinating both as an example of North Korean filmmaking and a strong story of overcoming athletic adversity, Centre Forward is at once inspirational, dramatic, amusing, and educational. Even better,by showing the sport’s importance in societies very different from our own, this illustrates the truly universal appeal of the 'beautiful game'.
