Before being just a movie about a football club, "Forever Chape" is a story of unity, struggle and overcoming. And also proud of a city that can project itself nationally and internationally through its players. It has an epic dimension - about how Chape soon evolved from series D to A. Success, the pain of loss. Do you want to know if you are going to cry? It goes, but the curious thing is the leadership party, which never shows what, after all, made the glory of Chape, his happy football. Uruguayan director Luis Ara arrives at his third film with the documentary Forever Chape, in which he tells the story of Chapecoense, the popular Chapecó football club in Santa Catarina, against the backdrop of the 2016 air crash, in which 71 people died, including virtually every player, staff, board, and journalist heading to Medellin, where the South American Cup final would be played. With archival footage showing the club's trajectory from the fourth to the first division in just six years, the film reveals how the team managed to unite the entire city around itself, becoming a source of pride. And how he managed to rise from the ashes after the accident. The final third is the most exciting, as it recalls the accident, with the participation of only three surviving players, Neto, Alan Ruschel and Follmann, who had part of one leg amputated. The team also travels to Medellin, where they talk to a flight controller, who communicated with the plane's commander of the Bolivian airline LaMia, but could do nothing to make the landing safe. With the fuel tank dry, tragedy could not be avoided. Before it's just a movie about a football club, Forever Chape is a story of unity, struggle and overcoming. And also proud of a city that can project itself nationally and internationally through its players. It doesn't seem like much, but in times of world cup falling, it's an example of humility, perseverance, and love for the shirt. It may be jargon for the days of victory, but in the case of Chape, it is a mantra for facing defeat. The summary of a story that goes from 73 to five months after the tragedy. impossible not to cry when reliving this situation ... exciting testimonials, very well done. So my movie grade is 10.0. overcoming.
