Fascinating
4 April 2020 | by andy-68601See all my reviews

A compelling documentary. Really shows the adoration of the man himself and the power that football has to shift the mindset of the community. The film focuses mostly on his time at Napoli and I had very little Idea about what happened when they signed him. Certainly worth a watch
