125 days in a row at the cinema! Today I saw French sports drama Sparring.
In Sparring, Mathieu Kassovitz plays a boxer who has to fight against a rehashed script (the title of this movie should be Rocky the Wrestler, as it borrows extensively from those two films). Fortunately, Kassovitz’s dedication to the combat has him consistently taking jabs to our hearts in a knock out performance that will floor you. His skills, the competent directing and a striking soundtrack make for a come-back victory and a film that hits home.
Out of a possible 10, I have 8 Fs to give.
