法國導演Julien Faraut訪問多位年過70的日本女子排球隊名將,聽她們娓娓道出球隊在60年代轟動國際體壇的血淚史。原是工廠妹的她們在魔鬼教練的地獄式訓練下未逢敵手,被封為球場上的「東洋魔女」。她們的熱血故事,更啟發了當年非常受歡迎的女排動漫創作。

本片導演在訪問和資料片段中,混入這些動畫片段,創造出一部非典型的運動記錄片。再配上法國電子音樂製作人K-Raw的配樂、Portishead的名曲和Granddaddy主音Jason Lytle的原創歌曲,成功把50年前的歷史拍成新潮有型的電影。

The forgotten story of the world’s most dominant sporting force is retold in this gripping documentary. Transforming from factory workers to international sports stars, the Japanese women’s volleyball team ruled the world in the 1960s. Now in their 70s, team members recount their humble beginnings and monstrous training routine that earned them the moniker “The Witches of the Orient.” These history makers and their single-minded coach demolished opponents with their unrelenting athleticism and impeccable techniques while proving to the world that postwar Japan was thriving. 

Director Julien Faraut’s refreshing take on the sports documentary genre deftly intercuts archival footage with present-day interviews and classic anime sequences. The film’s stylish tone is accentuated by its onscreen graphics and deliberate music sequences featuring K-Raw’s electronic score, a Portishead classic and original songs by Granddaddy’s Jason Lytle.
