What lies behind a soccer ball
13 November 1998 | by (São Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Perhaps it will be impossible for a US citizen to watch "Boleiros" and like it - not only because the action happens all the time in São Paulo, that isn't known as Rio de Janeiro outside Brazil, or because the movie focus on some costumes that are typically brazilian on sport coverage - but also because the film deals with stories and emotions that are typical of a people that loves soccer.

I normally watch soccer at World Cup and Olympics time only, and even for me "Boleiros" has been a funny - sometimes, REALLY funny - and emotive movie, because the director has known to capture the emotions of those that follow their teams, wherever they go, whether they play well or not.

Perhaps the europeans could watch the movie and understand - not only with their brains, but also with their heart - what is portrayed on screen...
