Foreign Language Series, Shaolin Soccer, 500px  Shaolin Soccer (2001) [In Chinese]

This three-way blend of sports, action, and humor features Sing, a modern-day Shaolin monk who has become a master of traditional fighting skills and is renowned for his "leg of steel." However, these days there isn't much call for a Shaolin warrior, so he and his fellow monks earn their keep working menial jobs until a soccer coach gets the bright idea of translating Sing's talent for kicking to the soccer field. An upcoming tournament could net them a $1 million purse, but beating the steroid-fueled champions will be no easy task. Directed by Stephen Chow. 1pm, Harugari 209, 87 mins.
