Another curiosity in John Huston's filmography. The screenplay is very thin if we put aside the soccer theme. So let's focus on the performances of Pelé and his comrades who are, let's say it once and for all, soccer stars and NOT football players (you know, this American game featuring men in shorts fighting for a ball). A DVD strictly reserved to soccer fans or John Huston completists.
Okay, so it’s a little subpar for Huston, but some pretty harsh ratings and reviews here. Entertaining sports movie and fairly solid as far as sports based movies go. Not the best I’ve ever seen, but worth a watch.
Certainement un des films les plus inintéressants et les plus insipides du grand metteur en scène John Huston, avec la même année le tout aussi médiocre "Phobia", qui a conçu là une oeuvre strictement alimentaire... www.cinefiches.com
