Daniel's an exceptional footballer, a striker. Julio's the team's captain, a born leader. They were raised as brothers and play football in their slum, La Ceniza. Daniel dreams to play professional football while Julio feeds the family with dirty money; he has no time to dream. The opportunity of their lives arrives when a football scout invites them to tryout with the city's best team: Caracas Football Club. But tragedy strikes them. They must choose, on a dirty football pitch, what is more important: family, revenge or the dream of their lives. On this pitch, life is on the line Written by Marcel Rasquin

A story from the barrio (slums) that is far from usual.
11 September 2010 | by Leo Lameda (leo-lameda)See all my reviews

One of the big problems of Venezuela's film industry is that the slums are portrayed as meaningless wallpapers in which the story moves. Hermano is not the case, as a Venezuelan I can say I felt the movie was filmed in a way no other film was: Dialogs, people and even the story (except for the high speed pace of it) finally sounded/looked real. That is on a personal level, now on a more technical one, the photography is very well done, the soundtrack is accurate and full of Venezuelan songs (not very usual here) and the story is so rich that I actually think the script or a script-based novel should be published, that is a book I'd read!! On the downside, well for reality's sake... Our soccer team sucks and it is not as popular in the barrio (baseball or basketball would have made a bit more real of a story). I already mentioned it but the pace is too fast and there are a couple of stories that were not important or even necessary for the plot. I am nothing but a regular viewer but if you trust me go watch it.
