Historias de Fútbol (Soccer Stories 1997)

Soccer Stories (1997) amazon dvdSoccer Stories, or Historias de Fútbol, consists of 3 short stories set in Chile, but none of them are worth your time.

As soon as it was over, I rushed to put the DVD back in the Netflix envelope. Put together by Andrés Wood, a young Chileno director who studied cinema in New York, the stories have no point. The production values are so minimal, there is no sense of the location other than that people are very poor and the towns are practically deserted. The main characters in each story are without purpose and unsympathetic. All the women are either prostitutes or unfulfilled. The title of this movie should be “Soccer Babel”.
