With Portugal having won the recent Euro championship they returned home rightly feted as football supremo’s rising to the occasion when it really mattered and cheered by adoring crowds as ticker tape rained from the sky and rose petals were strewn before them on their open bus top tour of the capital.
For the English team it was a somewhat different matter as they once again proved what an overpaid shocking shower of shite they really are and frankly they too should have gone on an open bus top tour of London where the crowds could then freely and without impunity hurl abuse at them as they pelted the team, in the tradition of open air rock festivals, with stale bottles of urine. If nothing else it would certainly sharpen their instincts to at least try and win a game in future.
But we digress because this week we have documentary about one of the world’s finest football players, Lionel Messi and Spanish filmmaker Álex de la Iglesia uncovers the man behind the legend in fascinating documentary MESSI, available on DVD from 25th July 2016, courtesy of Soda Pictures.
What makes Lionel Messi the greatest player in the world? Iglesia explores this question through the opinions of major footballing icons, fellow players and friends in an extended roundtable interview, analysing the personality of the striker both on and off the pitch.
Intertwined with this is a vivid recreation of the player’s childhood and teenage years, which, combined with intimate home videos and archive footage from some of his most renowned matches, illustrates Messi’s incredible journey and rise to the top.
