Bend It Like Beckham on North Korean TV

Bend It Like Beckham movie posterA heavily edited (down to 1 hour from 112 mins) version of BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM was the first ever Western movie to be shown on N. Korean TV. Respect due to the fixers at the British Embassy, who wangled this one. The movie was supposedly chosen because of North Korea’s fondness for football – but there are other, better football movies out there. My money’s on someone at the Embassy having a crush on Keira Knightley…
