Amdaeo loves Metegol, but will he be able to p'lay and win a real football match?
13 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

Excellent. Amazing. Truly unforgettable. Friendship, values, codes, are dealt with in the film I strongly recommend for the whole family... Don't miss it!!! The voices for the characters are excellently chosen, since the actors reflect the profile of each character. Juan José Campanella shows again that he is one of the best Argentine directors ever. If I voted, I would send this movie to compete for the Oscars, because it does have chances to win. Take my word for it, go to the cinema. You will enjoy for sure... The plot is perfect and the events do happen in our daily lives. Who has not played ";etegol"? At least in Argentina, if you say no, you must be lying. We love Metegol and football, of course and we will never forget this beautiful movie, which will remain in your hearts for good.
