  • The longer this profile of the mixed Muslim-Jewish crew follows players over the course of a difficult season, the more it establishes the difficulty of burdening one team to serve as a national symbol of reconciliation—and how hard it is to break free from triumph-of-the-underdog clichés with even the best of intentions show more

  • The central notion in After the Cup is not the obvious; we can all live and work together to our greater achievement no matter where we are from or who we are. Rather, the question here is-will we-even when we lose the football game? It's a much smarter and more interesting question. show more

  • An energetic, nicely balanced documentary containing all the necessary elements for sports reportage with the added advantage of meatier issues attached. show more
