Soccer in São Paulo
29 April 1999 | by Ricardo-36See all my reviews

This movie shows the life of those who work with soccer. This movie shows the soccer of São Paulo, and the jokes are for brazilian audience only. If you are not brazilian, you should not see this movie (unless you are a big soccer fan). I think this is the best brazilian movie ever made.
