An excellent soccer movie for a novice
18 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember renting this movie quite a few times when it first came out, and because my husband was a soccer player from high school to adulthood in various leagues, we both enjoyed it. Back then, we didn't buy the movies to keep. Since then, I have raised our boys (alone; the hubby is no longer around), and both of my sons love playing soccer, but neither have ever seen this movie, nor do they believe it exists! I spent a couple of years trying to remember the name of the movie, and searching online about movies Pele was in so I could purchase the movie. Now, it's discontinued, and I can't find it anywhere. I would dearly love to have at least one copy of the movie (VHS or DVD), so I can show it to my sons when they come home on leave (both are serving with the USAF). If there is anyone who reads these who would be willing to give up a copy of this movie, I'd love to hear from that person! By the way, my daughter in law has heard of Pele, but has no idea how great a player he really was in his day. The movie was exciting, and in my opinion, was a good movie. I'm at the age where a good movie doesn't need violence, blood, or sex, just a semi-decent plot with action that didn't involve any of the above!
