Ping-Pong (2002)

Dir. Fumihiko Sori

Mitchell, Penny, Tony and Chris might like this, but I’m not confident enough to recommend this.

This is a Japanese film about two high school friends, who also happen to be good ping-pong players. One is brash and loud while the other is quiet and shy. They both train to face formidable opponent from a rival high school. There is also sub-plots that involve a the coach who was once a great player; a past incident where the loud friend helps out the quiet one from bullies. Some of these sub-plots took away from the film. Btw, the film’s cover art gave me the impression that this would be like Stephen Chow films (Kung Fu Hustle)–with the ping-pong players performing superhero maneuvers, but the film is not like that.
