Comedy about a couple that fall in love and find out that they root for competing soccer teams
20 March 2005 | by stgenovevaSee all my reviews

It's a beautiful love story and funny comedy, set in Brazil, about a couple that fall in love and discover that they are fanatics about competing soccer teams. They can take it, but have to hide it from their families. Her father is in the board of directors of Palmeiras soccer team, while he is the president of the uniformed rooting of Corinthians. The comedy is in the day to day relationship they have to have with their families, pretending to enjoy listening derogatory comments made by their families about their team preferences. Bruno Barreto ( Dona Flor and her Two Husbands - Gabriela - Bossa Nova ) direction is superb and, all in all is great comedy worth seeing !
