A film about a football match in Pernambuco, Northeastern Brazil, in which we see none of the action, or even a single player. We only catch glimpses of the fans as they bake, rather sluggishly, under the punishing sun, rendered in distinctly un-Brazilian black and white. We do, however, get plenty of colour from the vigorous radio commentary, which describes every twist of the on-pitch drama with a combination of passion and mischief. We only fully grasp just how remarkable this commentary is in the final seconds of what is an inventive and highly enjoyable film.
