So you want to know what is soccer all about? This movie is an example of how a sport can be showed at his peak. A delight, from the beginning to the end. The players are the stars, and the movie shows how they fight, run, and suffer, playing the most popular sport on Earth. And the figure of Maradona, the hero, passing as a lighting, at his peak of talent...8/10
