Its a very good movie, i still looking for an VHS version or DVD, but
can't seem to find it, its the best documentary about soccer that I've
watched. The cameras, the way that they interview people, asking why
they love soccer, is so great, the scenes in the game, never showed on
an TV before, mixing with the sounds of the movie, gives you an feel
that you are inside the field, asking the the guys that has the ball
"hey over here!!"
The last minutes of the movie, are amazing, I can't get that image of Roberto Baggio (best player in the world at that time) looking at Romario, out my head, it just incredible, what was he thinking? "can we beat Brazil with this guys on their team?" I don't know, but if I had an opportunity to ask I would. For the soccer lovers, buy this documentary, you wont be disappointed it.
Incredible movie, the greatest documentary about football ever. The history of World Cup 1994 at USA is told by images in chronological order, showing since the qualify until the final. In beautiful angles, never seen on TV, is a must see for football fans, and for those who doesn't understand this great sport.
That sporting documentary, tell the history of the World Cup of Soccer of 1994, in the USA, gained by Brazil. With beautiful images of the stadiums, games, inciters and teams, it is an exciting film, where the stars are the players that do of that event the biggest world sporting party. The title of the movie refer to the number of people that attended the final game, in other words, third part of the world population!
How times change, this film is only 16 years old yet it seems so long
ago in a time of wild haircuts and some outrageous team kits. This
slightly underwhelming documentary films its visuals to stunning effect
but then seems to ignore the USA atmosphere which made this fabulously
well attended event so memorable by playing out the action to a silent
screen and way to often in slow motion giving a very detached effect.
The views of mystified Americans at the film beginning works well but isn't really developed while the shots of the fans and their hopelessly over optimistic viewpoints is consistently entertaining.
The movie seems to select Roberto Baggio and Romario as the star players of the tournament which is what i remember but i also remember the USA world cup as a tournament which concluded with a dull grim final which the best team overall justly won on the day but the final all 120 minutes without any goals just has to be disappointing.
Likewise the film seems to labour to make the final even the penalties really dramatic which leaves the film judged as a whole good but in the end a little disappointing.
Yet its amazing to remember just how close underdogs Sweden and Bulgaria came to changing football history so for that i think the 1994 USA world cup belonged to them.
