There have been attempts to reproduce the beautiful game on the silver screen but none have come near to this scene (for British footballers of a certain age at least).
Taken from Ken Loach’s “Kes”, a film about a young boy and his pet Kestrel. The overbearing teacher is Brian Glover (Alien 3, American Werewolf in London).
“3 Millones” (3 million) is a documentary about a father and son that follow the Uruguayan national football team during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
It’s a refreshing look at the football matches, supporters and African hosts. The father is a famous singer and musician, Jaime Ross and his son, Yamandu is a photographer.
Both are passionate fans and this comes across brilliantly (although the match reports are very, very biased).
Comes with English subtitles on itunes.
ps.The population of Uruguay is 3 million
