See you in Montevideo, the second part of the film ''Montevideo, Taste of a Dream'' depicts a twenty days long journey over the Atlantic Ocean of Yugoslav National team to the First FIFA World Cup in Montevideo,Uruguay. The movie shows circumstances that came about after their arrival to Montevideo, games that were played and all the obstacles, those much different than those that they left behind and faced in their country, those that they had to overcome in order to bring back the bronze medal to their homeland and be the source of news that circled the globe: that the national team of Yugoslavia won third place in the First World Cup. An incredible and never before seen welcoming celebration, that was waiting for them upon their arrival to Belgrade, was retold decades to come.

“When we started working on 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… In a kind of tale that we all love to watch since we can’t all live in it…”
