Champions

There’ll always be inequality,” says one of the people with disabilities who are the real stars of the hilarious and heartwarming Champions, referring to the arrogant basketball coach given the task of turning them into a team. “But we’re teaching him to handle it.”

That kind of pleasingly punchy reverse logic is typical of Javier Fesser’s fifth feature, which aims both to entertain and to tackle prejudice head on. The emotionally uplifting result, which has “labor of love” written all over it, has been Spain’s biggest box office hit to date of 2018: International presales have been healthy, with remake potential for any production team prepared to take up the challenge of replicating Champions’ freshness and fizz.

Fesser’s reputation as a distinctive “outsider” director is built on zany comedies, but his finest work to date is the intense Camino, about the dangers of religion. The zany-but-thoughtful Champions brings the two sides of Fesser together, celebrating otherness at the same time as criticizing traditional attitudes to it. Marco (Javier Gutierrez) is an assistant basketball coach for a Spanish major league side who has attitude problems that have led to a separation from both his wife Sonia (Athenea Mata) and from his coaching job as well. (At the start of the film, Marco is frankly Neanderthal in his attitudes, in a way that even remotely enlightened auds might have trouble identifying with.)
