The Greatest
7 March 2015 | by ScarlecchinosSee all my reviews

As a big Messi fan (who actually support Sevilla), I was not so excited about this movie. I read his biography (both Caioli and Balague's books), I watch his every matches. So I thought to myself "there won't be anything new" but I watched the movie last night and I was touched by it.

It as really amazing seeing his friends, former teammates and coaches and everyone else.

It's always nice to watch or listen the story of a legend. How a little kid with ghd became a legend?

We all know Messi the Footballer but seeing people who know about him since his childhood made me learn few things about Leo the Person. And it was amazing. We, fans, always want to learn more about people we admire, our idols. We want to know more about their lives. And Álex de la Iglesia (with Jorge Valdano) did a great job here.

Messi, with his intelligence, his speed, his skills and his personality, is simply the greatest player ever.

Well done!
