Substitute on IMDb
The football World Cup 2006 from the perspective of the French national player Vikash Dhorasoo and the writer and musician Fred Poulet. Both shoot footage with a super-8 camera: the one his everyday experiences as an increasingly frustrated substitute player for the Équipe tricolore; the other everything that happens during his travels throughout Germany and inside the stadium at all the French games. Melancholy instead of euphoria, loneliness instead of „one-for-all-and-all-for-one“rhetoric, a tragic hero instead of a glorious athlete – „Substitute” is the other documentary football film. What begins as a World Cup adventure, full of hope, turns into the diary of a bitter disappointment.
