Movie Info

Jacob van Oppen, a washed-up alcoholic who was the former strongest man on earth, and his crafty manager Orsini, make a good living by traveling around small South American towns, organizing wrestling exhibitions in run-down theaters. Once this oddball pair disembarks at the village of Santa Maria, business really kicks off: the local newspaper sponsors the fight, and helping hands placard posters announcing an open call for a worthy adversary. Ever so resourceful, Orsini has always known how to find the right combatant that will invariably lose against Jacob, but fishing in Santa Maria could lead to a bigger catch than he'd hoped for. --© Film Movementmore

Good, not great, take on attempting to hustle the rubes when you're well beyond your glory days and things just don't go as smoothly as they ought.
