Synopsis

First it was a bet, then an internationally best-selling book and now Tony Hawks' eccentric, hilarious Playing The Moldovans at Tennis, is a feature film starring Anatol Durbala, Stephen Frost, Angus Deayton, Morwenna Banks, Pat Cash and Alistair McGowan. Tony attempts to win a silly bet, but soon becomes embroiled in an uplifting and life changing adventure in a little known country on the eastern fringes of Europe. The eccentric wager was made in a London pub during a televised World Cup qualifying match between England v Moldova and resulted in Tony trying to track down the entire Moldovan football team, challenge them individually to a game of tennis, and beat them all! Along the way Tony discovers that he may have bitten off more than he can chew. In Europe's poorest country, that endures daily power shortages, bullying gangsters, and even an illegal and lawless breakaway republic, he finds that it's not that easy to coax footballers onto a tennis court. Playing the Moldovans at Tennis is a life affirming, warm and moving film that shows us that, in love stories you don't always fall in love with another person - sometimes, it's a country. http://www.moldovansmovie.com/
