A sentimental, in the sense of maudlin, education. A young boy from Belo Horizonte, dropped off in the Jewish section of São Paulo to live with his grandfather while his dissident parents go underground, discovers that gramps has just died and he’ll have to watch the 1970 World Cup in strange company. There are areas of charm, but in the narrowly focussed photography there are larger areas of blur. Directed by Cao Hamburger. 2007.
