The Cup R4

Looking forward to this title.

Buddhism is their philosophy. Soccer is their religion.
While the soccer World Cup is being played in France, two young Tibetan refugees arrive at a monastery/boarding school in exile in India. Its atmosphere of serene contemplation is somewhat disrupted by soccer fever, the chief instigator being a young student, the soccer enthusiast Orgyen. Prevented by various circumstances from seeing the Cup finals on television in a nearby village, Orgyen sets out to organize the rental of a TV set for the monastery. The enterprise becomes a test of solidarity, resourcefulness and friendship for the students, while the Lama, head of the monastery, contemplates the challenges of teaching the word of Buddha in a rapidly changing world.

An arguably heart-warming and fun movie. The first 30-minute is very slow, but once the story kicks in, it becomes quite enjoyable.

The R4 transfer is reasonable, nothing spectacular. Though much better than the print that was shown in the Australian crummy art-house theatre I went to see the film in originally.

I'm highly skeptical it will.. but the R4 is pretty cheap (A$22 including shipping) if you have a multi region player.
