FOOSBALL is Juan José Campanella’s first cinematographic project since he was awarded the Oscar® for “The Secret in Their Eyes”. Sergio Pablos, creator of the original idea for “Despicable Me”, is the Animation Supervisor.
The film tells the story of Amadeo, a shy but talented boy, and of a foosball team that is trying to get back together after having been dismantled. With the help of the foosball players, Amadeo will have to face his most terrible rival on the football pitch: the Champ.
Guided by their leader, the charismatic Right Winger, the foosball players and Amadeo will set off on a great adventure together, like a true team, to get back the dignity that the Champ stole from them. Football is the stage on which this story of love, respect, friendship and passion is played out.
