Storyline

A portrayal of Ferenc Puskas, the kid from Kispest who became the brightest star in the footballing galaxy. He created a legend in his youth as captain of the famous Golden Team but adoration turned to persecution when he fled his homeland in 1956. He went on to travel the world with his soccer skills and achieved almost all that can be achieved on a football pitch. He was adored by Real Madrid supporters and played for the Spanish national squad after making Spain his second home. His career as a player lasted an amazing 20 years and after leading the sport on the field, he moved to the bench from where he coached players all the way to the European Cup Finals. He is still greatly admired in Hungary, Spain, Greece, Australia and across the globe. Puskas spent his life bringing people together from all walks of life as he took on new cultures and learned new languages but always remained a true Hungarian at heart. He loved life and lived it to the full. He became the world's most ... Written by Filmplus

Puskas = Football
8 July 2010 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Puskas is football, so simple like that.

I saw the movie in the cinema, the last week. I went with my grandpa, who lived sometime in Spain. He was a Real Madrid's fan and in the end, he cried. I was really surprising, I never seen him cry before. But, well, he felt a lot of things. I guess.

I didn't cry, but I felt moved. Because Puskas wasn't only a great football player, was to, a incredible man. Who had an unbelievable life, full of adventure.

Anyway, all these thing can see it in the film. Very well made, with a lot of statements, from many important people, like Di Stefano, Pele, Platini o Beckembauer. The film show all his life, from his beginning in Hungary, until his death in Australia.

The film has to, beautiful images, old images, and old videos. From 1954 World Cup, and an old Olimpic Games.

I knew Puskas, but I didn't know how incredible was his life. And all the thing that happened.

Very well made, and very good.

My only criticizes is, they should put or say who was talking. Because, in some cases, like the Hungarians Players, I didn't know who they were, and I would like know. That's all.

Nice.
