Clumsy sports satire uses a feather-brained European soccer superstar (actor Carloto Cotta) to make fun of corporate and governmental corruption, but our hero is so dumb the jokes fall flat. Writer-directors Gabriel Abrantes and Daniel Schmidt have the basic outline of a story here. Too bad they get carried away with the giant fluffy puppies Diamantino hallucinates when his mind wanders on the pitch, which is often. Should be booked and sent off before the interval.
