Great film about the best football player ever
First of all, I gotta say the "football" I'm talking about is what Americans call "soccer". The whole world, however, name the most popular sport in the world, "football". Anyway, this is about "football", as the planet knows it. Edson Arantes do Nascimento, or just Pelé, was the best player the world has always known. He's also considered the athlete of the century. Many people believe he's the most famous person in the world. But we don't need to discuss it, what we must know is how good he was. Everybody who saw him playing says he was some kind of genius. He could invent plays as no other player ever could. In this documentary, we, people who couldn't see him in his professional days (1957 - 1974), have the chance to see what they missed. Pelé is still a famous person in Brazil, where he lives (he's 64 years old now). We still see him on TV very often, and his talent survives time thanks to lots of images saved in documentaries like this one.
My Rate 8/10
