Short Synopsis:

Belgrade, 1930. A bunch of nobodies fight their way to the first FIFA World Cup. A story of friendship, enthusiasm, persistence and love for the game.


MontevideoBelgrade, 1930. Yugoslavia has been asked to enter a football team into the first ever World Cup. Young Tirke, a gifted but poor player, must choose between the stability of a factory job and the chance to be a play for his country - in a time where only one player in the country gets paid, and that’s on a per goal basis. This film is good-hearted fun, and whilst the plot may never surprise you (of course he chooses football), that won’t stop you from enjoying the charming story.
Pulling together all sorts of strands, the plot includes a personal clash of Tirke with the upper class captain, over both football and girls; a publicly ridiculed coach; the manager’s financial worries and the personal lives of several players. Add to this a rich period setting and costumes, and you have a film with something for everybody – as proved by the film’s success in its native Serbia.
Based on the book by famed sport journalist, Vladimir Stankovic, Montevideo follows the transformation of a nation’s football team from something pitied into a symbol of the country’s hope. In doing so, it charts the early days of players who would go on to be genuine national heroes. With a wonderfully charming cast, Montevideo is a heart-warming, fun and easygoing film.
