2 Strangers and a Foosball

Movie Summary

Director:

Rating:
Not Available
In pool and poker movies, the main objective of the characters is to cheat, fool, hustle and win at all costs, but that is not an exemplary principle, nor the healthiest way to look for happiness. Thus, this genre seemed to need a movie in which the protagonists would play a game because they love it, because they want to relate to other people and because it allows them to escape from the outside world. The smaller and simpler game of foosball was more adequate for a modest production, it has a connection with innocence (seen as a big toy for children), and the table itself is an intimate space, more personal and less theatrical than pool. Because of these connections to innocence, purity and childhood, the characters of this movie have a chance to become children for a night and escape the drama of their regular lives. Duke (Tim Rozon) is able to become the big kid of the party, admired by everyone, instead of the little man he feels in his job and his life. What he does not expect is that two outsiders will appear and shake up his controlled little world: Julianne and Anthony (France Viens and Randy Thomas), who arrive by accident at the foosball party. Anthony feels the urge to compete and win, so he stays for the tournament, neglecting Julianne's wishes. In order to get back at him, and beat as many competitive men as possible, Julianne decides to join the tournament as well and becomes Duke's teammate. Instead of the trophy or money at stake, Duke will compete for Julia...moreless
