Right tone, could've been very good
6 September 2018 | by rmgaspar-07099See all my reviews

I follow the club and obviously know accident details. But this is supposed to be about Chape's history from a small club to international success. A great idea, but average execution, as we go through photos and headlines without seeing important names, heroes or matches between 1977 and 1993 - the hard years. Why so many people dressed like Indians?

The main difficulty here might be copyright. How to tell such a story without showing one goal, one save, one minute of a match? You'd think this would make the film impossible. While it is a big problem, again the screenplay has a nice way of going around it...only to waste the effort by not identifying who the people speaking are, especially who are the players shown (besides the survivors, main interviewd people).

Names, scores, hurried, and without proper identification. Regular audiences will not go into individual faces, stories. In fact players who died are not real characters, only Chape is. The names and faces of the dead ones are nowhere to be seen. It is on purpose, but a questionable decision - at least for the players. How about saying Follman lost his leg before 104 minutes? So, good ideas and nice structure, but details not well taken care of sometimes.

But let's raise a huge positive. It deals with the tragedy remarkably well, no cheap sensationalism, interviewing all the right people, all the angles considered. It is a hard task, and it is well done. It doesnt waste unnecessary time in assigning and explaining blame, it is not the focus. Also, showing what happened afterwards, well done.

It has its flaws and they were actually the easier ones to address, but getting the right tone deserves credit.
