Review
Under Islamic law it's illegal for Iranian females to attend football/soccer matchs, but in this film a number attempt to smuggle themselves into a crucial World Cup qualifier against Bahrain. We follow the fortunes of a group who are caught, placed in a compound inside the stadium and guarded by a group of somewhat unsophisticated male army conscripts. The guards are totally terrified by the red tape of the situation they are in, for example, and most hilariously, when one of the girls needs to use the loo and there are only gents' loos available. Wickedly funny at times. Go for it girls!
