5 August 2019 | by FrenchEddieFelsonSee all my reviews

A fascinating documentary dealing with the various facets of Diego Armando Maradona who is undoubtedly an emblematic figure of the soccer world, like Pelé, Lionel Messi, Johan Cruijff, Franz Beckenbauer or (I'm French!) Michel Platini. We may see again, with an indescribable pleasure, the phenomenal ascent of this genius then the glory, in the 80s, with the Argentine victory at the World Cup organized by the Mexicans in 1986 and the very first victory of the Neapolitans in the Italian Serie A in 1987. Then, we sadly witness his descent into hell and the Italian ingratitude as sudden as pathetic. A sober and synthetic work about the extra-ordinary life of Diego Armando Maradona.
