Three interspersed stories of people in remote parts of Mongolia, Niger and Brazil struggling to get TV reception of the 2002 World Cup final between Germany and Brazil
24 March 2007 | by pfkflyerSee all my reviews

The three plots can be a tad corny, but very colorful, valuable and humorous insights into these three native cultures, and the cinematography is truly stunning, especially the scenes in Mongolia and in the desert - not so much the Amazon rain forest, which is probably harder to capture visually...although the native warrior running through the forest with Ronaldo's jersey number 9 painted on his bare back was pretty good. The sweeping views of the Altai mountain range in Mongolia in the background, with the four hunters on their shaggy ponies carrying their golden eagles on one arm knocked me out. Also the hugely overloaded truck in the desert. Undertones of political or class conflict constitute a second common thread (besides the World Cup) that ties the three stories together.

Favorite tag line (from the Mongol storyline): "How was your day, Grandma?" "Fine as usual, my boy - another day witnessing existence in bewilderment."
