The Cup

"OK"

The Cup Review


A lighthearted look at the modern monk. Apparently it's not all prayers and sand drawings -- real monks love soccer. The cup in question is the World Cup, and the movie (inspired by true events) traces the chaos that two young upstart lamas bring to a monastery when they expose it to the game of football. Ponderous yet utterly harmless, The Cup is ultimately a cute little diversion.

Aka Phörpa.
