Storyline

Translation of what's said in the trailer...

Unlimited skating speed. Unbelievable scoring skill. Can he even do something else besides skate fast? I had this sick hunger to prove it to myself that I can play in that league and play well.

JP SIILI DOCUMENTARY

Teemu is that upfront and generous one... ...charismatic and brilliant... ...kind of a dictator. I've been somewhat of a rascal before. Once I got a puck there, broken from three spots, that was broken, my shin and calf bones were broken at the same time.

STORY ABOUT BROTHERS

We took an X-ray and there were the twins. There are more similarities between me and Panu than there is between me and Paavo, one could see from so close how low someone can sink.

STORY ABOUT A FATHER

Well for me he is an idol, always been there for me when nobody else has. I still haven't grown up to an adult and I'm still wondering what I'm going to be when I do grow up.

Selänne is such an interesting figure, especially for us Finns. I feel that this documentary could have dug so much deeper into the character and thoughts of Selänne, under the surface. It just kind of pointed out the biggest event's in Selänne's life, about which he and his closest friends and family would talk, not concentrating in any subject for long. Not revealing anything crucial about who Selänne REALLY is.

Whenever the documentary needed drama and tears, it would bring Selänne's former drug addict brother to the foreground. Where and what are Teemu's demons? This documentary felt a bit like watching a propaganda film. Teemu was shown almost solely as a hero, admired by family, friends and fans. Still, there were moments when this polished picture seemed to get small scratches, comments by friends about Teemu's dictatorial character and behavior for instance. But every time the documentary started to get interesting, it began a new chapter with Hero-Selänne having the lead role.

Although I'm very much into ice-hockey and I'm interested in biographies, I almost didn't watch this one to it's ending. Deservers just couple of stars.
