Must-Watch: Short Film 'Nefta Football Club' Is Hilarious And Wildly Entertaining
If you’ve got 15 minutes to spare during today's commute or lunch break (you know what, it’s a Monday, just watch it at your desk), you should spend it watching this short film entitled “Nefta Football Club” by Yves Piat.
It’s got everything: comedy, suspense, soccer and a brilliant ending. The film was released back in 2018 but it’s just come out on Vimeo. To date, it’s scored nearly 50 prestigious film awards, including a silver medal at the Manhattan Short festival and the Best Comedy prize at Aspen Shortsfest.
The Riyad Mahrez-loving younger brother crossing the border from Tunisia to Algeria in order to “piss in Mahrez’s country” is now one of my favorite lines in all of film.
