Several Brazilians comment their memories of football (soccer)
24 March 2007 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Several Brazilian persons relate with nostalgia and fantasy their memories of football, also known as soccer. Since football is all very import to the Brazilian male society, the film is a faithful portrait of Brazil and its recent changes. The commercialism of football is there: previously football was mostly a passion, a religion, but now it is mostly a way to generate lots of money. Some go to the most talented (and lucky) players, but many are left only with the dreams, and an empty bank account. There is also the limits of the players -- even with very little education, they're invited by the media to talk about lots of subjects, while all they can do is play. There is also the new relations with women that their new found money can provide -- for the good and for the bad. There is also a sensitive and sincere portrait of the football supporters, with their strange emotional link to the sport.
