The red card not only became fatal for his career of the player, but also derailed Patrick’s all life – today he is the homeless unemployed with alcoholic dependence from which the wife who has taken to court restriction of communication with the daughter left. As corrective camp it is offered to Patrick to train zashtatny amateur club of the fishing small village, having hard times. The football pro collects team from the old friends who long ago have hung up football boots on a nail, and intends to take from this national team of pensioners a cup.
Declared on a poster among other actors Jean Reno in the film was limited short, but a bright episode where acted as itself
Going to cinema on «Dream team» it is necessary for any to represent to the viewer, than for France football is. It not only «sports of millions», is as though banal it sounded, it often also the only way for poor people and migrants to arrange the life, from here to football players here special respect. Besides, the French football national team was in recent history at top of world tables of ranks that too adds interest to a subject among admirers of this sport.
If from a sports component of the film everything is rather simple, to explain, why as the director of the similar film Olivier Daan, that still work acted. The director advancing a biopic now removed recently «the Princess of Monaco», won recognition of critics by the biographic drama "Life in pink" about destiny Edith Piaf, and even earlier addressing to a thriller and horror genre in «The crimson rivers 2», suddenly shot the comedy, having switched to especially man’s audience. However, a certain talent allows Daan to stay afloat in any genre that in the fullest measure treats «Dream team» – the film does not suffice stars from the sky, being the dense serednyachok which is not applying for monasteries, but diligently entertaining those 90 minutes that the viewer spends for it.
The initial episode with sending off the field of the protagonist of the film is sending to Zinedine Zidane and Marko Materazzi’s which has occurred in a final of the World Cup of 2006 the conflict after which Zidane was removed, and Italy won the World Cup
From the drama point of view «The dream team» is simpler even, than rules of the game in football. All its interiors – a set of predictable cliches and the genre stamps painted on some steps forward. The viewer when viewing needs to note the landmarks placed by authors only: if the hero left career of the football player, means, in the field it will surely return, if the character was once noticed behind "sale" of matches, means, he will refuse the next bribe, if someone is disturbed by heart troubles, be sure – the blow happens at midpoint, "become famous" many years ago in the blow "parashyutiky" the forward by all means will repeat the trick all on trouble. All picture consists of here such weapon shop on which walls the guns any of which does not remain charged to a final caption are hanged.
Badly it or is good? During an era of the satire deriding many modern things like a phenomenon кидалтов or social, public degradation, "Team" looks an anachronism, but in the best sense of this word. The film is much closer to the historical roots, such as than the comedy with Jean Reno or Pierre Rishar, than to the Hollywood humour to which it is free or involuntarily cinematographers worldwide now try to correspond. It is huge plus for those who missed the comedies which were not too anxious with subjects «belts», but for hire in Russia – not the most successful set are lower, those who goes to the cinema to laugh, namely teenagers, such will not entice.
