A Film by Gerardo Olivares.
This film 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 Ð and the next television Ð making their task a particularly daunting one. Nevertheless, these inventive people possess the resourcefulness and the willpower to achieve their goal.
Editor's Note
The quest to view the 2002 World Cup Final between Germany and Brazil brings together three separate stories in THE GREAT MATCH.

Professional Reviews

Variety 9 of 10
A visually breathtaking, gently comic homage to the indigenous communities that are its subject and to soccer's power to penetrate lives, veteran Spanish documaker Gerardo Olivares' "The Great Match" provides superb entertainment for an hour before running out of steam...the characters are engaging and handled with a combination of wry amusement and compassion. The shortage of storylines is compensated for by the practicalities of their day-to-day lives, such as in the Amazon, the women's frustration at the men's uselessness as hunters as the men paint football shirt numbers on their naked backs...Helmer's extensive docu experience comes through strongly. Thesps seem to be following the script, but are also being themselves -- the source of most of the pic's pleasures. - Jonathan Holland
