Ping Pong 2012
Description: Les D'Arcy is a living legend. At 89 years old, he's obviously not received the memo about slowing down, and is going for gold, literally. He's headed to China to compete in the over 80s Table Tennis Championships in Inner Mongolia. A seven time globe champion, he still lifts weights to train - something he's been doing for decades, after surviving a sickly childhood. Of course compared to some, Les is a spring chicken. Australian legend Dorothy deLow is 100, and finds herself a mega celebrity in this rarefied world. She'd better watch out though- Texan Lisa Modlich is fifteen years her junior and is determined to do what it takes to victory her first gold. Director Hugh Hartford follows eight users from five countries, as they prepare to compete in this extraordinary sporting happening that is as much about the tenacity of the human spirit as it is about taking home the title.
Released: 06 Jul 2012 Director: Anson Hartford, Hugh Hartford Writers: Hugh Hartford Actors: N/A Genres: Documentary, Sport

Big Country: Final Fling #

Released 5/16/2002

Description: With the untimely passing of frontman Stuart Adamson in 2001, the game Final Fling couldn't be more sadly appropriate. This two-disc set captures Large Country toward the beginning and near the end of their 20-year career. The first disc details a 1988 performance from an outdoor peace concert in East Berlin, shortly before the release of Peace in Our Time (and before the Berlin Wall came down in 1989). It's a straightforward, electric set played in front of a huge, enthusiastic crowd during the twilight hours. The second disc finds the Scottish rockers back at their old stomping grounds, Glasgow's Barrowlands, while on their Driving to Damascus tour with the Alarm in 2000. They may look older, but their chiming twin-guitar attack is as passionate and rousing as ever. Both sets contain such fanatic favorites as "Look Away," "Fields of Fire," and Top 40 hit "In a Large Country." --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Ping Pong Reviews:

Before I gush, allow me tell - hand on heart - that I have NO connection with this movie or its makers. I just went along to see it because documentaries nowadays are increasingly more interesting than 'real' films.Ping Pong is no exception to that rule. It's the antidote to the X Factor - the storyline of eight pensioners from around the globe competing in the Globe Ping Pong Championships in China. Every competitor is interviewed at home about their lives and participation in the sport, and we watch them prepare (or not!) before setting off.Their stories are funny, admirable, affecting and astonishing; their characters diverse as the nations they represent. My own favorite was Inge, the German girl who was saved from what sounds like dementia by ping pong. I found myself laughing and filling up in turn as these feisty old folk set off for the contest with a range of ambitions and emotional baggage.The whole movie is uplifting and gently gripping, sucking you in to the lives and backgrounds of these people. It would be the excellent movie to present schoolchildren, as it reveals old age in all its wonderful, poor incarnations.If only most screenwriters should capture one tenth of the emotional impact of Ping Pong, the movie industry would be something to behold.


Heart warming and a pretty insight to how these users see their health and their mortality. No matter what is thrown at them and by all means, its more than most, they just receive up and carry on. Some powerful inspirational characters to inspire all generations. Had me in tears as well as laughter. I went to the preview in London and the Q&A after with Terry Donlon was strong to tell the least. If these guys can do what they do at their age and health, anyone can. They prove that the power of the mind and a powerful will can overcome mountains. Makes you feel like you wish to receive up and go and do something productive, no matter how old or young you are. Simply brilliant!


Greetings again from the darkness. Missing a lung? No excuse. Had a kidney removed? Please. Suffer a several strokes? Let's play. Struggling with Dementia? Grab a paddle. Rarely has the human spirit provided a better platform than in director Hugh Hartford's documentary about super seniors (age 80+) and their pursuit of a Globe Championship in Table Tennis/Ping Pong.We receive to know a group of these users through interviews and a glimpse into their private life. The core group in the movie ranges from age 81 to 89 and are in different stages of health ... from cute spry (one of the ladies has a man toy 20 years younger) to hospital-bound given only a week to live (the interview took zone 5 months after that diagnosis). One thing I noticed in every of these experienced people ... place a paddle/bat in their hand and you can see the twinkle in their eyes and a bounce in their step! There are multiple Globe Championships represented here. There are arch rivals. Their are long time friends. We even meet a legendary Australian user ... she competes at 100 years old! The rookie from Houston describes her own testing "as irregular as my driving". One of the boys spouts off poetry and Irish limericks before dismantling an enemy on the table.This is a pleasure to watch. Could you question the motivation of these elderly folks, take in this quote: "I'll hold playing. I don't wish to sit down. I don't wish to die."
