    • Excerpt: This is the kind of movie I’d love to see get recognized in the Academy Awards’ Best Feature Documentary category: a well-made, feel-good tale you don’t want to end.

    • Excerpt: A rousing documentary that pays tribute to the grit of male and female competitors in the over-80 World Table Tennis Championships.
  • Rich Cline @ Shadows on the Wall
    • Excerpt: Keeps a smile on our faces all the way through, but it also inspires us to perhaps think about doing something with our golden years besides sitting around moaning.
  • Dustin Freeley @ Movies About
    • Excerpt: A documentary for the ages.
  • Jennie Kermode @ Eye For Film
    • Excerpt: The Olympic year of 2012 is seeing a lot of sports-related documentaries make it to the big screen, but you won’t see another like this one. Ping Pong follows a group of contestants all aged over 80 as they compete to win the senior level world table tennis championships. It might not seem like the most exciting piece of cinema but you’ll be surprised by how quickly you find yourself rooting for its vivacious heroes.
