Trivia Diamantino

Lead star Carloto Cotta said that to play a soccer superstar (loosely inspired by Cristiano Ronaldo), he did not take additional soccer lessons but instead worked with a personal trainer to develop highly-defined six pack abs - something Ronaldo is famous for. Cotta worked out for months in advance following a strict training regime and diet that had him eating almost no carbs. Two sports essays by David Foster Wallace - "Roger Federer As Religious Experience" and "How Tracy Austin Broke My Heart" - served as inspiration for the film, to delve into the psychology and personality of a sport superstar.
