“The Tennis Space” Reviewed the Movie “Playing the Moldovans at Tennis. The film is available on internet for a small fee. Here is an excerpt of that review:
For some reason I have never quite been able to put my finger on, tennis has rarely been portrayed well on the big screen. The drama-crammed one-on-one nature of the sport should work well but somehow, it rarely does. But perhaps that perception will change now with the release of ‘Playing the Moldovans at Tennis’, the film adaptation of Tony Hawks’ best-selling book of the same name.
For anyone who has not read the book, the film is actually less about tennis itself than it is about Moldova, the landlocked country between Romania and Ukraine, oppressed for 500 years and then left behind after the downfall of Communism. A labour of love, Hawks wrote the screenplay and penned the music for the film, keeping the budget low in an effort to bring in as much money as possible for the charity he set up.
