The Great Match

Filmmaker Gerardo Olivares raises crucial questions concerning globalization and the information age with this lighthearted tale of three groups inhabiting isolated corners of the globe, yet all sharing the common goal of watching the 2002 World Cup finals no matter how far they must travel to do so. Germany and Brazil are about to go toe-to-toe in the biggest game on the planet, and despite the fact that they're hundreds of miles from the nearest television, these three soccer-loving groups are determined to witness every breathtaking goal. For a family of Mongolian nomads, this means traversing some of the most treacherous terrain on the planet. Of course the Tuaregs of Sahara don't have it much easier, and the Amazon Indians who long to root on their team will have navigate the so-called "Green Inferno" just to reach the nearest television. While most folks take instant access to information for granted, these three groups will travel hundreds of miles just to experience but a precious few hours of football-induced bliss.

The scenery, soundtrack and actors are terrific. However, the movie is too short. This piece is more of an intercontinental home movie than an over polished work, so I suppose it is most appropriately evaluated and enjoyed as such. I await both the release of the soundtrack and the sequel.
