I wish I could show this movie to the entire world
6 December 2009 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

It is a shame that I can't find this movie here, in Australia. I have the DVD in Brazil, but not here with me. Anyway, the DVD has no English subtitles and I can't understand why! I saw that they have a "english version" called "Pele Forever" and I hope I can find it someday, because here in Australia, our football is not the first (not even the second, third or fourth) sport. Maybe now, with Australia and New Zeland going to World Cup in South Africa, the "soccer" market grows and I can show this amazing movie here. Great documentary, truthful and thrilling. Pelé was not only a genius, but he is an amazing human being. Congratulations, Pelé, for all you've done. And congratulations to Anibal, Armando and José Roberta. Well done.
