A football match, a family trip to Oporto, a funloving Story
5 November 2000 | by (Lisbon) – See all my reviews

One of great marks of Portuguese Film industry, this is a great and a simply funny story, reviewing a political era, when football was just entertainment. Filled with funny situations and presenting the cast of an era, represents family and social life in Portugal at that time. Strongly recommended, go and learn portuguese so that you can't miss a thing. Two thumbs up!!
