13 January 2018 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Sympathetic film about a kid, Oscar Casas , from Spain who is drafted into a footBall team to play against International footballers of The FIFA . As a coach called Torres, Damian Bichir, has to train a misfit group of kiddies facing off professional and adult stars and othe expert trainers as Carmona and Cassari who took the Torres' wife. Meanwhile, Torres falls in love for a beautiful girl , Ana Claudia Talancon who is engaged another person.

This is a sport comedy with a silly premise, how a team of motley kiddies have to play a group of expert sportsmen hired around the World. This is a slightly funny flick with amusing as well as embarrassing situations, giggles , emotions and a love story between Damian Bichir and Ana Claudia Talancon . The highlight of the movie results to be the Spectacular and moving final sporting confrontation at a Mexican stadium . It stars the likeable child Oscar Casas who provides a nice acting in spite of his short age. Damian Bichir plays a stiff coach who must teach the rebel children to play well against an adult team.Antonio Resines plays a grandfather who advises and helps Ivan in his aims. Special mention to Ernesto Alterio and Fernando Tejero as two outlandish roles , playing a pair of Tv presenters, parodying the excessive radio anchors.

Colorful and evocative cinematography by Joan Benet. Atmospheric and stirring musical score by Alejandro Giacoman . The motion picture turns out to be a Spanish , Argentinean , Mexican coproduction , financed by the great producer Gerardo Herrero , Mariela Besueievski , Andres Calderon , Inna Payán ; being regularly written and directed by the expert on comedies Roberto Santiago and he also made previously other soccer comedy, El penalty mas largo del mundo . He has made acceptable films as El Club De los Suicidas, Al final Del Camino , Solo para dos, and Hombres Felices. Many of them starred by his fetish actor Fernando Tejero
