Storyline

Three stories about football, one of the most important twentieth-century rituals. A third division player from Santiago de Chile is bribed, but does not realise that his behaviour betrays more than the loyalty of his team-mates. A boy from Calama, Chile wins the local derby pichanga, a soccer match that can last all afternoon, but he loses the few pesos he acquired by pawning his mother's last possessions. Francisco, a boy from the city, is stuck in a remote corner of the southern island of Chiloé on the day that Chile has to play its qualifying match for the World Cup. The only TV is in the house of the Serón sisters. While the local male population gathers to watch the match, the sisters decide which of them will initiate the young Francisco into love.

The most important event in South America
20 October 1999 | by (Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

Andrés Wood (no relation with Ed Wood!) shows with humour how the soccer is present in the Chile's everyday life. More than a movie about soccer is about the people who is around it. Daniel Muñoz performance, the burp contest in Calama and the Gustavo Moscoso's goal are the highlights of this movie. In the screen Chile ties with Germany 1-1. Actually, this match was played in 1982 world cup and we lost 4-1! This movie was a success in Chile and one of the best in the second half of the 90s.
