This is actually my favorite movie...period. It's not just a story about ping pong, although the matches are fun to watch. It's a movie about friendship and balance in relationships.

There's a lot of funny nuance to it, even though it seems like a serious drama.

The acting is great, without a doubt. You need to give it a watch at least once.

As the title suggests, most of this movie they're just playing ping-pong / table tennis, but it's the bits in between that made me watch and like this movie.
It is all about friendship and passing obstacles to fulfill one's dreams.
I think the acting was really good and I can't say much about the table tennis parts, but it looked quite well-done, too. The music was there, but not really that read more important.
Not only the main, but also the supporting characters were really likeable and well played.
You could call this a slow movie, but it's good nonetheless and full of emotions. :)

(By the way: Watch it and see what difference a hair cut can make to a person. It's amazing.)
