Belgrade, 1930 - The story follows eleven passionate, mostly anonymous, soccer players and their journey to the first ever FIFA World Cup in Uruguay.
From the cobblestone streets of impoverished Belgrade neighborhoods to the formation of the national team and their consequent departure for the first World Cup in faraway Uruguay.
The initial doubt that surrounded their personal and professional lives is transformed into a shared ambition to prove themselves in Montevideo; as a result, a story about friendship, enthusiasm, persistence and love for the game is unraveled.
The Idea and the Project
Montevideo, God Bless You! is a project produced by Intermedia Network which includes a book, feature films, TV series, a documentary, a monograph, exhibitions and line of accompanying events.
The feature film is planned to consist of two parts. The story of the first film is based in Belgrade, capital city of Serbia, while the story of the second film is based in Uruguay.
The screenwriters of the film “Montevideo, Taste of a Dream” used the book of Vladimir Stanković, renowned sports journalist as a factual basis for the story’s dramatization about the unsurpassed success achieved by the representation of Kingdom Yugoslavia at the First World Championship in Montevideo (Uruguay) in the year 1930.
Based on true events, dramatized by renowned screenplay writers Srđan Dragojević and Ranko Božić under the first-time director’s palette of actor Dragan Bjelogrlić, this historical melodrama gives us a unique and somewhat nostalgic view into the 1930’s of Belgrade.
Director's Note
When we started working on the film, in front of us a whole new and wonderful world started to unfold. A world of simple people who regarded themselves as ordinary, not realizing that they were everything but ordinary. We found ourselves in a time in which romance was a way of life and chivalry the foundation of behavior.

Following the football traces, we discovered a magical force. In a time when playing sports was a privilege of the upper class, “the new game in shorts” came over the little people from the margins. And those, to whom most earthly benefits were out of reach, embraced this game, recognizing not only their heroes in it but hope, obtainable by all.
We tell the tale about all those things… A kind of tale that we all love to watch since we can’t all live in it…
 Dragan Bjelogrlić, director (Belgrade, Serbia, 2011)
