Really is the football version of catch me if you can!
27 July 2018 | by nellie-21006See all my reviews

As a female with little knowledge of football, this wouldn't be my usual choice of film but I was pleasantly surprised. Beautifully shot and brilliantly told, the story of the tragic figure that is Carlos Kaiser provides the full spectrum of emotions, from laughter to sadness. It's a fascinating story and can't believe it's taken this long to be picked up.

I also read that the guys who made this dreamt up the idea in a pub, with little experience of filmmaking, unbelievable in itself!

Brilliant soundtrack too - go and see it.
