Daniel's an exceptional footballer, a striker. Julio's the team's captain, a born leader. They were raised as brothers and play football in their slum, La Ceniza. Daniel dreams to play professional football while Julio feeds the family with dirty money; he has no time to dream. The opportunity of their lives arrives when a football scout invites them to tryout with the city's best team: Caracas Football Club. But tragedy strikes them. They must choose, on a dirty football pitch, what is more important: family, revenge or the dream of their lives. On this pitch, life is on the line Written by
So i'm from Venezuela and i never took the time to watch this film before, until one guy in my deontological ethics college group decided to pick this one for a movie analysis assignment, and i'm very glad he did. Hermano is a movie about two very different but well attached brothers and their dream of going pro on football, the story of the picture is an authentic way of showing how easy is to not take the right path for your future while living in any Caracas' slum. The acting is pretty solid and the movie is made in a way that allows the foreign viewers to understand good enough what the main characters are experiencing. So if you feel like having a foreign treat, i would strongly recommend this one, trust me, and i don't even like football.
