Storyline

A modern day "Romeo and Juliet" is told against the backdrop of professional football in Portugal, with two feuding teams, Castelo and Invicta, filling in as the Montagues and the Capulets. The latest incident in the feud is an on-field brawl between the players worse than they have ever had, which results in an indefinite suspension of both teams from the league pending a full investigation. Each game not played results in a loss and thus less and less chance of either team reaching the post-schedule championship. Beyond the direct measures to have the league lift Invicta's suspension, its owner/president, José Carlos Silva, believes another indirect measure is to win in the court of public opinion by currying favor with Philip Andrews, a British documentarian filming a movie about the feud, and whose cameras and stories he hopes will document that Invicta is the innocent victim. To curry that favor, José, upon Philip's expression of interest, is pushing his innocent daughter, Inês ... Written by Huggo

Skip this turkey
25 October 2011 | by peter07See all my reviews

This flimsy remake of "Romeo and Juliet" is about a British soccer player in Portugal and the daughter of the rival team's owner. The scenes of the beautiful scenery in Portugal saves this movie from getting a rating of from me.

This movie is so darn predictable and has no interesting takes on the classic love story. Plus I found the male lead not likable since he seems like a typical British punk, and he resorted to a dirty trick in injuring that player off the cliff. He got no sympathy from me.

I know nothing about Portuguese cinema but I certainly hope that this movie isn't the norm there. A BIG thumbs down for me on this turkey.
