Storyline

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 Marcel Rasquin

A sports movie unlike any you might see
10 August 2010 | by (Venezuela) – See all my reviews

You may never see "Hermano" because it's (a) in Spanish, with a lot of slang, and (b) it revolves around soccer. If you do so, you will miss out on one of the most inspiring movies --not just sports movies-- you might see. The acting is not very professional, but it is extremely natural, which makes it all the more believable.

How many movies have you seen where the protagonist must overcome all odds to find a dream? And this comes from one of the worse places in the world. What the two brothers face in this story are something people in the slums of Venezuela deal with on a daily basis. And yet I doubt you will find people easier to laugh, to help a neighbor. We might all learn something from this movie. Please, try to find it.
