Dreaming is complicated, living a vision is more simple
If you never have a vision bigger then yourself, you shouldn't watch
this movie, because it may looks too romantic, too limited for you. If

politics, or any other little things mentioned in this movie. It's
about a team, about living a dream of eleven and more of them, in the
time when the sport was only a game. Before I watched it I was sad and
confused, after the movie I was inspired and ready for tomorrow, what
ever that means…
