‘The chosen scenes transports us into the football stadium and the emotions that come with it, causing goose bumps to any supporter’ - Paulo Vinicius Coelho, Folha de São Paulo

From the director of A Night in 67 (RBFF 2011), more than a documentary about football, this feature is a narration of passion and fanaticism that will accelerate the heartbeat of all sports enthusiasts. With statements from such football stars as Zico and Romário, along with rabid fans, the film invites the viewer to share one of Brazilian football’s most charming feuds – the rivalry between two of the largest football clubs in Brazil: Flamengo (Fla) and Fluminense (Flu). Aside from rescuing historical footage and memorable football matches, Fla x Flu alternates between factual and personal statements from both teams, giving rise to provocation, banter and high emotion.
