Offside

video
This Short Film Is Very Clever. The Tension Between The Two Teams Is Immense And Captured Well. The Camera Angles Grab The Nerves And Fear Of The Four Men Involved, The Shots Are Back And Forth, And Just Like A Football Match Is Building And Building Our Expectations. The Commentators Following The Game On The Radio Commentate What We Are Seeing Perfectly, Although Its Actually The Match They Are Talking About.

I Like These Short Films I Have Picked To Show Because They Are Visually Exciting But Also For The Messages They Give. Offside In My Opinion Shows That Men On Two Apposing Teams Or Two Fighting Armies In This Case Can Share And Have Something In Common, The Game Of Football. Its Like For Just The End Of The Match The Can Separate Their Differences To Listen To The Game Together Like Old Friends. The Ending Would Have Been Nice If Everyone Involved Didn't Die But Rather Walked Away Cautiously. I Understand The Ending And The Commentators Saying What A Tragedy It Was As The Goal Was Offside, When The Accidental Shot Went Off Into The Other Mans Stomach In Celebration Of The Goal Which Was Then Ruled Out. A Pointless Tragedy, Maybe The Story Of All Warzones.
