Trivia

Carloto Cotta has unique accent in the film. He picked it up from his personal trainer Pedro Medeiros who fails from the Azores region of Portugal. The film-makers said that as Cotta was working on developing his six pack abs with Mederios, he was also slowly learning his accent and used it in the film. They noted it has a musical quality and fit with the character. See more »

Painfully embarrasing!
13 November 2018 | by palovyperSee all my reviews

This is truly a unique film. Although unique in this case doesn't mean either interesting or good.

If films where pointless absurdities and narrative are completely out of sync is your thing, then you'll like this sci-fi/political thriller/football flick.

The acting is beyond awkward but what's even more insulting is how this work trivializes and makes petty fun of real issues like the refugee crisis, the rise of right-wing nationalism, gender transformation (which here is described as "disturbing") as well as homophobic abuse. Simply awful.
