A quarter's hero
27 August 2007 | by magullonSee all my reviews

Fernando (Fernando Tejero) is a loser. A gray type, without ambition, that works like bookcases distributor in a supermarket of the quarter. In his free short whiles, he is substitute keeper of a football team of third regional one. In all the season a single minute has not played nor. But the last Sunday of the league the referee indicates penalty and the titular keeper injures itself. Fernando must occupy goal for the first time. If for penalty, the equipment of the district will proclaim champion and raise of category. If no, all the effort of a year will not have been worth for anything. When penalty is on the verge of sending itself, a group of indignant fans with the referee invades the field and prevents that the party finishes. The competition committee decides that penalty must send the following Sunday, in same goal, with such players and the field closed to the public. El Penalti más largo del mundo, (The Longest Penalty Shot in the World) is exactly the history of that week of delay. Seven days which Fernando becomes a hero in the district overnight. And it obtains much more of which never it had dreamed: to be the center of all the glances, that they invite to him to eat, to drink… only must open the mouth and their desires become reality. But mainly it obtains what more it wants in the world: that Cecilia (Marta Larralde), the daughter of the trainer, gives an opportunity him to leave with her.
