Ping Pong

October 25, 2007

This fast, manga-influenced comedy about Japanese society and two ping pong-obsessed schoolboys will change your mind about how much fun table tennis can be. Known as The Matrix of ping pong the camera work is surreal. Five major awards including Japanese Academy Award: Newcomer of the Year (Shido Nakamura). ¬•Sori stages the movie`s many matches with great vigor and imagination (and a mastery of visual effects); we get easily swept up in the furious table tennis ballets he and his technicians and actors create.’ Mark Wilmington, Chicago Tribune.
