    Corneliu Porumboiu is deeply involved with football. Infinite Football is his second football movie following [#i_]The Second Game[_i#](2015) with his father, a former football referee. This documentary is a depressing portrait of former football player Laurentiu Ginghina. Ginghina, still suffering a traumatic injury after a fatal fracture in 1986, tells a new football theory in a long interview and explains ´Football Innovation plan´: flexible game rules, a new stadium type, a system dividing each team into two, etc. The film is also a strange fable about the social and political reality of Romania, with a strong black comedy and the satire about bureaucracy, as his previous?films. A lame football revolutionary, wounded in the Ceausescu era and forming the new plan in the 1990s, represents Romania today, looking forward to a better future. [JANG Byungwon]
