Incredible life and tragic death of a footballing legend re-imagined through the eyes of his young son.
19 June 2018 | by alibrysonSee all my reviews

Poignant beautiful film about a young boy who discovers the truth about his legendary footballing father's untimely and quite bizarre death.

Not wanting to give away any spoilers, The Ghost is worth watching just for the sumptuous attention to detail in recreating the time period and for the silent 'narration' of Action Man. An absolute must for any Tottenham fan and for any fan of elegant, cinematic storytelling wanting to have their heartstrings pulled.
