Storyline

Trainer Oronzo Canà is called to manage Longobarda, the team of a small town of Northern Italy, when it's promoted to the First Division. His only task is not to go back to the Second Division, but even the team's owner plays against Longobarda since the First Division is too expensive, and the young Brazilian player bought for the team is affected by deep 'saudade'.

Masterpiece's Sergio Martino!!!!!
4 April 2003 | by b_vaccoSee all my reviews

A masterpiece about football movie... Banfi is superlative to perform Mr Canà.. Martini painted a perfect portrait of 80's italian world football. Plot is foreseen, screenplay is trite, Aristoteles is a bad bad bad player but these are the reason 'cause it's a masterpiece..tactic explain scene is one of the best italian comic quality scene. Memorable the unforgettable performances of Pruzzo, Ancellotti,

Zico, Graziani and...fake Platini..
