Daven Kapla was nice in his role as the "evil soccer player." Cute cool. Soccer is represented well in this film. So is the war between the sick boy (Huston). Pele, as everytime is amazing. Brazil could be very proud. Much better than Cats.
This film is supposedly about a miracle of sorts, but if you ask me, the miracle found in this film is that this weak budget independent production not only managed to receive John Huston in its cast, but also soccer legend Pele. One has to wonder how they got both legends to appear in the film when the screenplay is so lacking. The largest flaw in the screenplay is that none of the characters is fleshed out enough to become convincing in our eyes, especially the kid characters who could be the heart and soul of the movie. And the climatic soccer sequence, which could have us on the edge of our seats, is extremely boring and poorly choreographed. If you are wondering about performances, Huston seems to be phoning it in, and Pele is downright terrible (though in fairness, he seems to not be extremely familiar with the English language.) In short, this is a very forgettable movie, which might explain why the copyright holders forgot to renew its copyright, resulting in the film falling into the public domain.
A lot of criticism has been levelled at this film, along with considerable incredulity that it attracted Pele and John Huston to its cast. Lets set the record straight. This is a real story, which John Huston was passionate about bringing to the screen. Which is why he worked so difficult to place the project together. Pele was in it because he was involved in the happenings depicted in the film. The movie cast one or two another of the original protagonists to enjoy themselves, and also, I believe, genuine orphans to enjoy the orphans. This was intended to lend authenticity to the performances, which it does. It also lends a natural, unforced, quality to the performances of the children. The quality of the script and direction is such that you don't need precursor happenings to set up one's knowledge of the children's characters. They are simply who they are, and the viewer, if paying attention, understands them and their motivations immediately. This movie is admittedly not typically in the American style, as it does not spell everything out. It tends more towards the European style of movie making, with its lean and spare script assuming intelligence in the viewer. I love the refreshingly un-cutesie nature of the film, and the fact that its not a straight-forward Town Corporation bad, orphans nice story. It is never that black and white.
