The Definitive Documentary About The Soccer Legend
Soccer is probably the most loved sport in the planet (except in the U.S.), and people are always discussing who is, or was, the greatest soccer player of all time. Well, if you watch this movie your doubts will go away. Pelé is the definition of a sports genius, and his feats didn't get all the publicity they deserved because there were no global media as today. This documentary tries to fix this glitch. Anibal Massaini Neto, the film's director, did extensive research for more than 3 years to gather as much information as possible about Pelé's career and his goals. All the material gathered went through a process of restoration and the result, though not technically great, preserves well the memory of Pelé's achievements. If you like soccer and had the chance of seeing Pelé play, this movie will be pure nostalgia, but if you've never met "King" Pelé, this movie will function as a soccer encyclopaedia. A must see!
