story about the death of Il Grande Torino team of soccer players in 1949. Excellently told story with portrayal of family difficulties in post war Italy. Worth a look.
18 January 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I had never heard about this momentous event in Italy's soccer history. This team known as "I Torri" were famous as they had proved themselves to be unbeatable. It is a story that captivates as we follow the life of a young Angelo who dreams of one day playing with his favorite team, I Torri. The story is recounted in retrospect where we are first introduced to the old Angelo who is approached by a reporter to talk about the sad event of the death of an entire team of highly talented players. As Angelo relives the story we the viewers are transported into the world of post war Torino and observe the events of that fateful day emerge. As well as that we watch the family dynamics of Angelo's family who have moved to Torino from Naples to get work. Soccer mad Angelo attends the Liceo or college and proves himself to be a talented young player. He meets Susanna who is the daughter of the manager of I Torri. He tries out for the Giovani Torri or Young Torri and gets into the team. He gets close to his idol, the team captain, Valentino Mazzolo, portrayed with intensity and focus by Giuseppe Fiorelli. The team prepare for a match is Lisbon and Angelo is selected to go but a family crisis forces him to stay behind. The movie closes with the old Angelo going to the actual monument in Superge in Torino and saluting the team.
