Storyline

Trainer Oronzo Canà is called to manage Longobarda, the team of a small town of Northern Italy, when it's promoted to the First Division. His only task is not to go back to the Second Division, but even the team's owner plays against Longobarda since the First Division is too expensive, and the young Brazilian player bought for the team is affected by deep 'saudade'.

Cult Movie
4 August 2005 | by (Amsterdam, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I guess this movie can be fully understood only if one's Italian so if you're not I guess you shouldn't even bother.

The movie is extremely funny, no need to look for a deep meaning, if you wanna watch it, just turn your brain off for a couple of hours and enjoy

Don't even bother to understand why some of the actors in the movie could get the part, some minor characters in the movie really look like they couldn't even act in a high school play butI guess back in those days the industry was working in a different way. But anyway that's not the point, I told you, just turn your brain off, this is one of those movies you can watch 20 times and still laugh for the non-sense of some lines and also for the awesome performance of Lino Banfi who's definitely at his best in this movie.
