I saw this movie, some years ago, on TV. This is a very hard to find film, shot in Ecuador in the seventies. The main story of the film surrounds the football atmosphere in Guayaquil, by that time. A group of poor kids have a dream: they want to go to the Estadio Modelo, and watch their idols during a soccer match between Barcelona and Emelec. Alberto Spencer, the best Ecuadorian soccer player of all times, makes his cinema debut, showing that he was also an acceptable actor. Beautiful Patricia Aspíllaga, shares credits with the sports idol. There are also some nice shots from Quito and Guayaquil, and some interesting supporting actors. Definitely a must seen film for every football-soccer fan.
