Editorial Reviews

Raised as brothers, intense teammates and competitors on the soccer field - the gregarious, swaggering Julio and the wiry, focused Daniel/ 'Gato' have remained virtually inseparable ever since the newborn Daniel was found abandoned in a trash heap in their La Ceniza slum. The opportunity of their lives arrives when a football scout invites them to try out for the city's top professional team, just as a tragic act of violence threatens to tear them apart and prevent them from achieving their dreams.

Finally this film will be available for purchase!

This is a beautiful film about growing up in the "school of hard knocks" in Venezuela. A tough but tender film with an ending that will leave you breathless with surprise. A must see for all aficionados of Latin American Spanish-language drama.

Outstanding movie about brotherhood and a cautionary tale about the consequences of revenge. This is a very worthwhile movie to see.

Format: DVD
The beginning of the film, the find of an abandoned infant, is as emotionally striking as the ending of the film; and through the story it weaves through the many times told scenes of the tough, brutal, and lawless lives of poor communities throughout Latin America and other parts of the world, yet told with a different nuance, naturalness and vividness which makes the viewing interesting. The film's acting, cinematography, and staging is remarkable; and, since it is centered around soccer, it provides a very close insight about the passion of the game, in very well choreographed scenes and shots, of film and of the ball, and presents it as it is, one of the only routes out of the characters predicament. But the movie is not about soccer, it is about human character, its vicissitudes, and its redeeming aspects from within our humanity.

I was surprised to find such mediocre ratings of this film on Rotten Tomatoes, where many of the professional critics disparage the film for some of its cinematic cliches and hard to believe plot twists. Had I not lived in Venezuela for 5 years, I might have agreed with them, but sadly, the violence in this film is a pretty accurate reflection of life in the barrios of Venezuela, especially Caracas. The film, full of references that Venezuelan audiences would get, also relates themes such as honor, love of family, and vigilante justice which are very much the essence of Venezuelan culture. I'm also not a particularly huge fan of 'futbol', but the soccer scenes in this film are quite enticing. That is not to say that non-Venezuelans would not appreciate this film - if you can look beyond some of the melodramatic coincidences and empathize with the current experiences of people trying to make a living in places like Catia, I think you will also find this a very poignant and powerful film about the trade-offs between sacrificing on behalf of loved ones who died versus sacrificing for those loved ones still alive.

Nice film of two brothers who play football to get out of their poor life in Venezuela. Really moved pictures, for ones who like films with brotherhood. This is a very worthwhile movie to see. Excellent how they catch the interest of the viewer. Everyone who looks for a film for a film night with the brother - perfect!
