The Other Final- 2003 Movie
My notes on the movie describing the key points that stood out.
Bhutan and Monserrat are on other sides of the world, both at the bottom of the FIFA ladder.
-Captain of Monserrat is also a policeman, so is the coach
-Tradition in church, religion
-lack of facilities, volcanic ash stings eyes when training.
-University is the size of a house.
-“Hope in the eye of mourning”
-Volcano eruption caused Monserrat to loose all sources of income, relying on British aid.
-The Bhutan King was a ball keeper in the 70's
-No football stadiums- like local football setup
-Passionate about football
“In a world were big is important, small is obscure”.
-Many people do not know where these two countries are in the world, either did I.
-Monserrat's national sport- Cricket
-Exclusion zone- volcanic ash
-Football stadium is in the middle of the hills/forest
-Gross, national Happiness.
-Every human being searches for happiness.
-2 dimensions to sport- opportunity it gives to countries and individuals
-The sports can make society, peace and harmony among peoples.
-Success and failure
-Rural Festivals- Bhutan I as an outsider consider this to be strange.
-Bhutan players never had formal training in football.
-1960's Bhutan opened country to development, sent many children to neighbouring countries like -India to study, this is where many children learnt to play football.
Bhutan's “soccer stadium” is compared to Japans.
Bhutan's sever loss exposed them to the world for the worse.
-Monserrat- Feeling Hot Hot Hot anthem. I would of never known that this country was responsible for this song.
-Pray before game.
