fantastic film
31 May 2005 | by (Iceland) – See all my reviews

Although I don't understand a word in Portuguese! i found this film to be excellent. The whole work was, so alive and nicely put up. I'm a football fan from Iceland. I had not seen much footage of Pele, but everybody who love the game of football know his name. Just to watch his talent, unbelievable, and more to it, he also just look so genuine as a person. He is in my mind one of the greatest athlete of all time. Football is the greatest sport in the world, and he was the best player in this sport, that says a lot about him. congratulations to this film. Goal!

pele er bestur!
