In Santiago, Chile, Chola and Football are two homeless dogs – who aren't homeless at all. Scrappy, adorable mutts, they live in Los Reyes, the city's oldest skateboard park, kept company by dozens of teenage boys who are constantly in motion. (Surely the film's title also refers to the dogs, truly kings of their quirky world.) One dog constantly schleps around a deflated football (or golf ball or empty soda bottle); the other romps alongside him day and night. The voices of the young skaters, set against the noises of the city, form a soundscape: bragging, complaining, joking, sharing the daily experiences of working-class kids. One day, two dog houses miraculously appear in the park – just in time to provide shelter for the coming winter. A touching film about the mysteries and joys of friendship: 2-legged on wheels and 4-legged on the ground. "An extraordinary film." – Jonathan Romney, Film Comment
