‘Dias de futbol’ (2003) a funny Spanish buddy film

Dias de Futbol (2003) amazon dvd

Días de fútbol, or Football Days, is a pretty funny Spanish buddy film about 7 men who resolve to enter and win a soccer league in order to cheer up Jorge, who has been dumped by his long-time girlfriend. All of the men have troubled love lives, and they are all terrible soccer players. They are led by Antonio, an ex-con with anger management issues, who wants to become a psychologist and tries to solve everyone’s problems.

This movie has sex, nudity, constant swearing, and many references to male anatomy. Even the kids in the movie chant obscenities. As far as soccer, it’s amusing to watch the various ways the teammates cheat and yet still lose their games.

This movie cost € 2.6m to make and apparently grossed quite a bit at the box office. A couple of years after making this movie, Fernando Tejero (Seraphin) had the starring role in the deplorable film El penalti más largo del mundo.
