Aroview: This charming, slyly comic tale of soccer-mad young monks obsessed with viewing the World Cup has found broad worldwide appreciation with its authentic perspective of a universal subject.
A first film from an eminent teacher of Tibetan Buddhism, its young stars are also real-life members of the monastic community, all playing characters similar to themselves. Based on a true story.
