Reviews

An awe-inspiring documentary exploring the essence of what makes Brazil one of the greatest footballing nations ever known. Ginga - the mysterious, indefinable magical quality of rhythm and movement which sets the Brazilian game apart from all the others.

Produced by Fernando Meirelles (City of God, The Constant Gardener) and directed by Marcelo Machado (Tropicalia), Hank Levine and Tocha Alves. Ginga follows seven young footballers from a diverse range of social and ethnic backgrounds, providing an insight into the passionate culture that produces some of the world s finest footballers.

One of those great players is Real Madrid s Ronaldo who said: Ginga, it s in our blood, it s a gift given by God especially to Brazilians who play football and learn to dance from an early age. I think Brazilians are given Ginga when they re born and continue to improve it through childhood.

  • Film of Os Gemêos
  • Interview with Director and Producer
  • Interview with Roberto Carlos
