PG-13 | | Drama, Romance, Sport
The extremely talented Santiago Munez is given a chance at professional football, after being spotted by a scout who has ties with Newcastle United.
The role of main character Santiago was originally going to be played by Diego Luna but he left to work on other projects. Kuno Becker actually called Diego before he took the role to hear Diego's reasons for not taking the role.
I don't know where home is.
Roz Harmison: Yeah ya do. It's green an' it's got a goal post at each end.
When Santiago goes for a run across the Tyne Bridge, he runs off in the direction of Gateshead, on the south bank of the river. However, it is portrayed that he runs off the bridge and onto the beach, which is Tynemouth Longsands, being on the north side of the river about 10 miles away.
US version was cut for commercial reasons to a PG rating (the original version had a PG-13 rating).
