      These stinky men made the audience orgasm for two hours

      I don't know if you have a good time during the National Day holiday?

      Anyway, this little long vacation, Xiaoying has been watching movies at home.

      In addition to watching "Wu Shuang", "Shadow", "Find You" and other popular movies released in theaters, Xiaoying also watched a particularly burning movie——

      "Basketball Champion"

      It is said that the background of this film is not...

      "Normal" is just a relative concept, who doesn't have the aspect of "incompetence"

      As a country that has always been at the forefront of the West in terms of appeals and actions on social issues such as women's equal rights, gay rights, domestic violence, and the rights and interests of the disabled and vulnerable groups, Spain is still at the forefront of the psychological construction of vulnerable groups and social respect protection. There is a lot of experience we can learn from. Madrid holds the world's largest LGBT parade every year, which is colorful and...

      Why can't we make comedy about disabled people in China?

      I am a parent of a mentally handicapped person. I am curious if I can see the ecological environment of mentally handicapped people in Spain through the film. The answer is "enviable". Of course, the movie did not make Spain a utopia, and these ugly big children were rejected and discriminated against. So what am I envious of?

      First, they all have a job. There are those who take care of...

      Warm healing

      Although it is possible to guess how the whole story will develop, the transformation of the protagonist before and after the movie and the warm and funny life between the two (no spoilers) have healed me completely. Watching the movie alone in the middle of the night is a I like it very much. I am surrounded by warmth in a busy and mourning state. Such a gentle force quietly touched me. In my opinion, this is a five-star movie that is definitely worth watching. When I get frustrated again,...

      The meaning behind the basketball championship

      The film is about a Spanish professional basketball coach who lost his job due to a conflict with the head coach, coupled with an emotional crisis and a drunk driving accident at night, who was assigned to a community group of intellectually disabled people for a three-month community Serve. Marko, who was tasked with training them to be a real basketball team, was devastated to see his players were all disabled and how they performed on the court, and he didn't believe they could form a...

      Good-looking routine operation routine movie, the ending of the anti routine routine without winning the championship is quite good. The whole film has a lighthearted and witty interest, with one person reserved on Monday morning, laughing...

Marco chose the latter and reluctantly...

    Evaluation action

    Although the film confuses the difference between the Paralympic Games and the Special Olympics, the concept of the Special Olympics - "every participant is a champion" - is well understood. It's hard to categorize this movie, it's not a sports movie in the general sense, and it's not a comedy movie in the general sense. Although the so-called "normal" is often used as a joke in the film, it is by no means a mockery of a specific...

    Movie quotes

    • Marco: My job is to train normal players. These guys aren't players, or normal.

      Julio: And who is normal, Marco? Are you and I normal?

    • Julio: What an honor that a professional like you is interested in working with a team like ours!

      Marco: Interested isn't the word.

      Julio: Neither is team.

    • Collantes: We play to win, not to humiliate.
