The best thing I've seen this year
16 August 2018 | by jason-17831See all my reviews

The true story of Carlos Kaiser who had a 26 year career in top flight football without ever kicking a ball. He duped clubs and mafia bosses to live the life of a superstar footballer without playing. His off pitch antics are a great yarn and told by those that were with him at the time including some huge names like Zico and Bebeto. You don't have to have any interest in football to be won over by Kaiser! You will laugh and cry and the twist near the end will keep you rooted to your seat. Listen out for the KaiserChiefs cover with the end credits too.
