As a Pelé's witness I was expecting a movie like this. It shows to the whole world who Pelé really stands for to the world of soccer (or football, in Europe and South America), mainly for people who didn't have the opportunity to live in the same time as him, or to see a so complete history of his life. Comparisons are totally unsuitable, because there was not, there is not and there won't be anyone who can be comparable with Pelé, copying words from the film. The compilation was accurate and complete with the agreement from Pelé himself. Pelé says that even novel material he had never seen before was found out. So, you should watch it, or better, you have to watch it. You're gonna love it, I'm sure. And see the extra material, only available in DVDs.
