    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 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.)

    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.

    This could have simply turned out just as another sports flick about table tennis. However, Fumihiko Sori's "Ping Pong" is much more than that. I’m far from being a table tennis expert. In fact, I never really cared for table tennis at all. If someone had told me that this movie mainly focused on table tennis competitions, that would have probably stopped me from watching it. I’m glad no one did, for this film is ultimately about friendship, respect and heroes.

    It’s true that the plot has nothing special about it. I’m not particularly familiar with sport flicks, but I presume it’s nothing new. However, I like the way this story is told, and there is some fantastic acting and a great number of enjoyable scenes
