Off Side

Members of a championship soccer team are suspected of taking bribes, and their headstrong coach decides to ferret out the culprit in this 1998 Colombian drama. The coach persuades the girlfriend of the team's black star to spy on the players (though we never learn why she's allowed to remain in the all-male sanctum of the locker room), and she zeroes in on a balding veteran near retirement. Hernan Mendez, weary and disillusioned as the chief suspect, and Ana Soler, his taunting inquisitor, engage in a give-and-take more charged than any soccer match, and though director Ricardo Coral-Dorado can't quite sustain the whodunit suspense, he does tease a lot of tension from the verbal sparring among the spy and the players, exposing the teammates' resentments and animosities.
