Originally entitled “Metegol” in Argentine-Spanish and voiced with native Argentinian talents, the movie is known in the US as “Underdogs” and has also used the title “Unbeatables” in other international territories such as the Philippines.
The film tells the story of Amadeo, a shy table soccer genius whose foosball figures come alive to help him save his local town and win his childhood sweetheart, both threatened by a preening soccer mega-star. 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.
Kick against the odds when “Foosball: The Unbeatables” opens October 1 in local theaters nationwide from Axinite Digicinema.
