Misses an opportunity
14 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a story of pick-up soccer, Pelada is fascinating and occasionally visually captivating, particularly the scenes in South America which occupy about half the movie. However, neither of the lead characters is particularly engaging, and after a while the movie seems more like a paean to the filmmakers rather than a good story.

There's a hint of a much better movie here. Why not tell the story exclusively out of the mouths of those playing in the games? Better yet, why not let us learn more about those people, where they've come from, what their life stories were? We meet old men playing soccer in a park on Sunday, but have no idea who they are, how they all happen to be there, or what their lives are like.
