Maybe you might have almost the same thought as me? Since The Journey was the highest grossing movie in 2014, so no doubt it we all have quite high expectation of this movie. But turn out to be it wasn't as nice as I expected, maybe one of the reason is the movie is taken from the true incident. As it was being clarify so clearly in the beginning and at the end of the movie that the idea was from the incident then the rest is by story imaginary creation.

也許因爲一路有你一路有你的關係,我對這部電影有著很大的期待感。這部的排場和製作可以說不輸一路有你,很認真地製作,就連嘉年華的設計,不知道你有沒有留意到那個旋轉飛行遊戲機,不是用鋼鐵的單杠建的,而是用竹筒搭建的。這個可能只是幾秒會被掃到的畫面,它就是這麽的真實地帶出馬來西亞的80年代。當時還有割樹膠和車衣服,記得我小時候,也是每一個晚上要幫我媽媽剪衣服的,當時的縫衣機是人工的,不像現在自動的(嘿,當年的那架,現在還在我家呢!)

Surprisingly my mom loves football so much during her teenage life, glad that I've a chance take her to watch this movie. Thus for a past tense football lover, of course she knows how's actual the result goes. And since the movie is about 80s in Malaysia, those time, remember those time, my mom still was a tailor at home, at night I still have to help her cut all the extra lace from pieces that she just sew (don't know how to explain that, but for those know about, they might know)

Personally I think this movie is even "全民" than the journey, it wasn't really a Chinese movie but is a Malaysian movie, as most of the movie dialog is in Malays, English and some Cantonese and Tamil. So it was definitely a movie suitable for every Malaysian even though you don't can't understand Mandarin.

Remember the last football movie I watched was Shaolin Soccer, a comedy movie, when watching this movie it was definitely reminds me of that. But genre of this movie wasn't a mainly comedy movie instead it's about how to choose between your dream and your work and family. Every of us got to face this kind of decisions in our life, at least once!From what I know is no matter what we had chose wasn't matter, the matter is don't regret after your decisions.

End of the story I do wish so much that this movie really can bring some motivations to our national football team, that truly wish the glory in 1980 will appear in Malaysia football platform again.

這個有別于的全民不能再全民的電影,這不是華語電影,而是馬來西亞的電影,大部分的對白都是以馬來語和英語溝通的,再加少許粵語及泰米爾語。

回想起最上一次看足球的電影已是少林足球那一部了。那整部都以搞笑爲主。而相對這部,是以年輕在夢想,工作和家人的抉擇的主要題材。夢想也許簡單,要去實現,除了要看自己的意志力,還要看看周圍的環境,有時候即使有很強烈的意念,但周圍都不容許你這麽做,想要堅持還是放棄都是一個人生必經的課題。好像電影的女主角,她放棄了國外的工作而選擇留在本地,也許很多人都會覺得這是很笨的想法,但我始終相信,即使是天才,去到哪裏都是天才。不是因爲天生與生俱來的天份,而是態度(不知道在哪裏看到這麽一段話“行爲改變習慣,習慣改變性格,性格改變命運”)

最後看完整部電影的結論,我反倒是很希望可以借這部電影來激起我國的國家足球隊,曾經輝煌的時期雖然已成過去,但未來還是可以創造的,至於如何創造還是要歸功於球員自己本身。

Ola Bola tells the story of a journalist named Marianne who was commissioned to research the Malaysia national football team which has made its mark on the era of the 1980s which was feared by opponents, especially in the Asian region. Marianne began to feel disillusioned with her working life in Malaysia and decided to emigrate to England. Before she left for England, she decided to complete her work for the last time. However, Marianne discovered a story so amazing, literally changing her life.

Looking back at the 1980s, the national football team faces the challenges where players have different opinions and not aligned, causing defeats in matches. The situation became more complicated when nearly every player had an issue and problems. However, they only have a chance to play for international glory. So, the players must put aside their personal matters for the sake of the nation. When the passion is re-ignited themselves, the national team challenge to break their spirit and hope for the nation.

Ola Bola is a fictional tale inspired by real events from different nations to work together to feel the spirit of togetherness and goodwill. The story will showcase the spirit, uniqueness and strength is in its diversity of race and culture in Malaysia.

《OlaBola》是一个振奋人心的虚构故事。它讲述1980年代,一支集合不同背景球员的足球队,如何克服团队矛盾与冲突、个人生活艰苦等考验,为一次能踏上国际舞台的机会而毅然背水一战。周青元导演的这部原创故事启发自真实历史事件,描绘着那些年大家举国同心,一起为国家队摇旗呐喊、团结一致,为国家荣誉奋战守候的辉煌年代。

Marianne,一位年轻有活力的专才,却在马来西亚看不到属于自己职业生涯的前景。在她决意前往英国寻求更好发展空间之际,一项离别前的任务,却意外让她发掘一段过去,更足以改变她的人生...... 

故事发生于经济萧条的1980年代,一支内部充满分歧的大马国家足球队,由于缺乏团队合作精神而屡屡遭遇不堪的输球。每个球员在大环境里所面对的种种个人和家庭问题,也渐渐让球队处于瓦解的边缘。面对这仅有的最后一次把马来西亚足球推上国际舞台的机会,这一支融合了不同种族球员的球队必须从心出发,克服每个人的障碍,为了国家荣誉团结一致再战球场。然而好事多磨,尾随而至的艰巨难题,令他们迎接战斗的意志力遭受无情的打击,国家的希望也即将于瞬间幻灭。 

《OlaBola》不仅是回望过去的一种警醒,也包含我们对未来的展望。作为一个启发自真实事迹的故事,它将带领我们一起见证曾经的马来西亚、那个所有国人为了同一个目标团结一致的时刻。这部略带凄美悲壮的英雄奋斗故事,再次让我们认识到大马多元文化的美丽及团结一致所能发挥的无限潜力。就像Marianne一样,或许通过这个故事我们也能找到留守家园、守护梦想的理由。这个理由,就叫马来西亚。
