Triumph of the racists
31 December 2016 | by (Saffron Walden, UK) – See all my reviews

'Forever Pure' tells a depressing story: an Israeli football club, famous for its racist supporters, signs two Muslim players; and the fans boycott the team. Eventually, those associated with the signing move on; and the player who most identifies with the fans' cause becomes the new captain. Ultimately, football is a business; without other incentives, you can't make money by upsetting your customers. The undertone here, of course, is that in polarised Israeli society, the notion of ethnic purity might have an appeal that stretches far beyond the terraces. As a documentary, there's nothing extraordinary about this film; its power comes in the sad but clear view of reality it presents.
