John Cleese meets the beautiful game...
22 August 2006 | by ginete26See all my reviews

It is always a good idea to define something from A to Z. It is even a better idea to define Football (the one that is actually played with both a foot and a ball) from A to Z. It is obviously a fantastic idea to have Thierry Henry, Michael Ballack, Mia Hamm, Káká, Pelé, Arséne Wenger, Pierluigi Collina and Brigit Prinz explaining the beautiful game they play better than everyone (except Ronaldinho). The class and humour provided by John Cleese, with several references to the Monty Python legacy, works as intermission between the statements and the precious footage of amazing moments of the Football history. All in all, a pretty good documentary about the past, present and future of this sport that moves hordes of people around the World. By the way, no matter how much I admire Henry, he cheated on the semi-final against Portugal :P Ginete
