Bend it like Beckham

August 7th, 2003

I saw "Bend it like Beckham" today, I have to say I was impressed. Overall a very cosy flick, largely about cultural differences encountered by immigrants. And Indian family tries to raise their two daughters keeping all the traditions intact despite their youngest daughter's dream of playing soccer. Noone was surprised at the outcome, which of course is a happy ending.

An entertaining take on cultural differences and a good chunk of that British lifestyle to go with it. Since I barely watch any British cinema, this would have to be among the top pictures I've seen. Interesting concept and well done. Needless to say the soccer element doesn't hurt.. ;-)
