The Great Match

Oak St. Cinema & The Minnesota Thunder present:

The Great Match

directed by Gerardo Olivares

showing May 18-23 at 7pm nightly

The Great Match tells the adventurous story of three heroes, none of whom have ever met, but who nevertheless have two things in common: firstly, they all live in the farthest-flung corners of the planet and, secondly, they are all three determined to see on TV the final in Japan of the 2002 World Cup between Germany and Brazil. The protagonists in this 'global' comedy are: a family of Mongolian nomads, a camel caravan of Tuareg in the Sahara, and a group of Indios in the Amazon. They all live about 500 kilometres away from the next town – and the next television – making their task a particularly daunting one. Nevertheless, these inventive people possess the resourcefulness and the willpower to achieve their goal.

Greeted with applause and genuine enjoyment at its 2007 Berlin Film Festival debut, The Great Match will undoubtedly touch the hearts of football fans and general audiences across the globe.

In Mongolian, Nigerian & Brazilian with English subtitles.

88 minutes, 2006.

Wow, Brazilian, there can't be many people who speak that! (I assume, of course, that you did NOT mean Portugese, but rather a native language.)

Sounds like a pretty cool film. I hope it plays somewhere in Chicago.

there's no such language as nigerian either. They probably speak about 150 different languages in Nigeria.
