The Best Moment of Our Lives (G)
Drama / 124 min. / Korean
Handball isn’t the most glamorous sport in the Olympics, but this film about the Korean national handball players is about guts and glory. Although Korea won handball gold medals at the 1988 and 1992 Olympic Games, a lack of public interest in the sport cause the team’s support to dwindle. To make matters worse, the team fell to second place in 1996 and failed to win a medal in 2000. The results forced the players to retire from the sport and return to mundane lives. But as the 2004 Olympics in Athens approaches, a former team member, Hye-kyeong (Kim Jeong-eun), hopes to reassemble the team for one last shot at gold. It’s not all fun and games for Hye-kyeong as she faces reluctant teammates and her rival, Mi-suk (Mun So-ri).
