Provence United

A bush-league soccer team wins a lottery drawing to compete with one of the best teams in Israel, and the manager has his hands full keeping the cretinous players focused on their game. This feature is at its best when depicting small-town Israeli life: there are some good bits involving the manager, who's up to his ears in debt and may be forced to sell off his star player, and a tentative romance between a shy player and a teammate's ex-girlfriend. But writer Youval Fridman and director Ori Inbar are so preoccupied with running the plot through its paces that they lose sight of the characters. In Hebrew with subtitles. 83 min.
