“Off-side” (1977) IMDb

Georges Schwizgebel (director).

Seen in 2017.

Unrestored print at GIFF 2017.

Soccer, or basketball, or hockey, or police brutality.

Schwizgebel’s first hit. It doesn’t have the solid planning of his later work, but it’s fun to watch the fluid movements as they gradually become more pointless. A good summary of how I see sports.
