Soccer surrealism at its crazy best. A cautionary tale about the emptiness of celebrity moves from the European playing fields to contemporary rightwing politics, following the picaresque career of our star, Diamantino, as manipulated by his evil sisters and political godfathers. Cutting and sarcastic and yet, when floppy giant puppies cross the field in cotton-candy clouds, you know the movie celebrates its own wondrous sensibility as well in a heady mix to challenge and delight a range of audiences.
