El fracasado cartero Eric Bishop (Steve Evets) se imagina la presencia contantes del centro-delantero del Manchester United Eric Cantona (lui-même, como dicen los créditos finales), quien funge como su consejero/entrenador físico/existencial. Una encantadora fábula de un Loach de muy buen humor. Expand

To keep both sports fans and cinema lovers interested during a sports drama film can't be easy but this is well achieved by director Ken Loach in this poignant and interesting British realism film. Cantona is exactly where he wants to be andTo keep both sports fans and cinema lovers interested during a sports drama film can't be easy but this is well achieved by director Ken Loach in this poignant and interesting British realism film. Cantona is exactly where he wants to be and thrives off of, a vision,a god of the other Eric's imagination. The scene nearing the end of 100+ Eric's marching towards a house is both strange and yet real at the same time. This film is unlikely to reduce Cantona's large ego, but maybe thats just what the public want. Football on the big screen isn't too bad after all. Expand

You don't have to be a Ken Loach fan to enjoy it. Loach, who has made a long and varied cache of usually trenchant portraits of British working class life, with sidetrips to the Spanish Civil War, janitor organizing in America, and the pain of the Irish Rebellion circa WWI, departs here with a serio-comedic approach that should expose him to new fans. I watched with someone who never heard of him, and is usually drawn to more popular entertainments, and they loved it. Stick with it through the early slow going. Expand
