Accidents of Fate: Rättskiparen (The Referee)

“Rättskiparen (The Referee) is short documentary about Martin Hansson, the referee who missed Thierry Henry’s handball. A Swedish television program had already committed to this project before the infamous incident which kept Ireland from going to South Africa. The station’s plan had been to track the country’s top ranked referee in the months leading up to the 2010 World Cup – as fate would have it, the story of course got more complex with that one game. It’s an incredible portrait – part of a wave of films looking at referees. This one has an unusually personal quality to it.” (From A Left Wing)

    I agree with Tarzan. A serious take on the world of soccer for a change. Great stuff. And truly recommended.

    An interesting documentary that could have been a bit longer in my taste. Recommended.
