The day after the Heysel disaster, Kenny Dalglish became manager of Liverpool Football Club. Six years later he resigned from the club, shell-shocked in the wake of the Hillsborough disaster. In between he created one of the most exciting football teams of all times. 'Kenny' explores more than just the roller-coaster career of an iconic footballer and manager. It goes behind the scenes to reveal an intimate portrait of a man who sacrificed all in the service of his club, his family and the people of Liverpool.

Kenny, a documentary of passion for the beautiful game
19 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

Liverpool FC was one of the teams I admired when I was a kid and Kenny Dalglish was one of the main reasons for that. Over time my admiration for that team faded away and I even started to hate them, I still do, but this documentary is certainly worth watching if you are a football fan. If you are a Liverpool fan or not, it doesn't matter, the movie is great to watch, with a nice history of all the legends that playend with the ultimate Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish. It's sometimes really emotional, with the two major tragedies that hit this club, the Heysel drama in Brussels where 39 people lost their lives and the Hillsborough drama where 96 people lost their lives. Any real football fan remembers those tragedies and seeing them in this documentary and seeing what impact it had on fans and players is sad to watch. Kenny Dalglish remains one of the greatest if not the greatest player of Liverpool FC, and one of the greatest English players ever. And even if you're not a football fan it's still worth watching, just to understand the passion this game brings to the people. A must see!
