Almost all his life...
1 April 2007 | by (Macerata, Italy) – See all my reviews

I saw this film in Italy but I am from Argentina. Of course this is different point of view. The life of Diego is showed as real as he told. You can think this is not all the true (and probably ain't), but actually is the most near story to the real life of Maradona. The film, is counted through flashbacks between the present and the past. Showing a man with success and errors and with a great self-destructing capacity. We see a contradictory, frank, arrogant, fragile, generous man. The film is not more than what seeks to be and that it is its main virtue. Excellent the first 15 minutes. With the sick Diego seeing to his self at childhood playing in a big stadium. Good cast and atmosphere.
