Are you a soccer fan ? Do you like comedies ?
If you answer yes to at least one of the questions above than you should definitely see the Spanish film Carlitos y el campo de los sueños. It has been a while since the film was released and it became quite popular in the Spanish speaking countries. Carlitos is 12 year old boy who loves soccer and is good at it. Unfortunately he is an orphan and the director of the orphanage where he lives hates sports .
Everything changes when Carlitos sees an advertisement for a selection contest which will allow talented young players to join the National Football Federation sports team and play in the Junior European Championships. But there is a problem – Catlito is not allowed outside the orphanage. During a school trip he manages to sneak out and attend the contest – and that’s when the adventure begins. He is approved – but now has to find a way to escape of the orphanage without being seen, train in secret while at the same time maintaining good grades at school.
The young Guillermo Campra delivers an outstanding performance in the role of Carlitos. He is rapidly gaining popularity in Spain – and is soon to appear in TV series called Águila roja . His acting talent and adorable looks are guaranteed to win him many fans across the world. You can check his personal web site at blogger and leave him an encouraging comment. Raúl appears in the film as well – so some football fans will be delighted
Carlitos is a nice comedy which kids will adore, as will the adults. As a film it is not perfect, but definitely fulfills it’s main goal which is to entertain. It teaches us all that with hard work and devotion, dreams can become reality.
Today I have a special guest author from Spain ( nicknamed Pajaro ) who would like to share his opinion on Carlitos with you :
