Synopsis:
The third film from the Academy Award and BAFTA-winning team behind 'Senna' and 'Amy', 'Diego Maradona' is constructed from over 500 hours of never-before-seen footage from Maradona's personal archive with the full support of the man himself. On the pitch, Diego Maradona was a genius. Off the pitch, he was treated like a God. The charismatic Argentine loved a fight against the odds and led Napoli to their first-ever title. It was the stuff of dreams. But there was a price...Diego could do as he pleased while performing miracles on the pitch but, as time passed, darker days closed in.

Imtimate portrait - Diego Maradona review by HM

Spoiler Alert
31/12/2019

George Best had it tough? Nothing compared to the relentless pressure heaped on this magnificent talent. Politics, national pride (in wake of Falklands defeat), the Mafia and huge expectations and fan worship. Add to that his use of trendy recreational drugs (people more naive about their effects back then) and you have a cocktail for disaster. This man's personality shines through and it is a wonder he survived. More protection afforded players nowadays thank heavens. You are left to ponder what he would have achieved in the modern game; awesome outcomes one imagines.

A very good film about a real life hero and controversial figure. A must see even if you don't like football; it isn't really about sport in the end, but fame and the effects of the spotlight.

"There is Diego...and then there is Maradona..." - Diego Maradona review by TE

Spoiler Alert
03/01/2020

This absorbing documentary focuses on Maradona's prime period with Naples and in the World Cup. There are brief glimpses of his earlier life, and of his more recent story.

The football is secondary to a tale of power, corruption, media hysteria and super-exploitation. It is essential viewing for anyone interested in the cultural and political importance of this sport in the modern world.

Somehow or other, Maradona's feisty spirit keeps bobbing back up, but at some cost. His flaws and his appealing vulnerability compete for our attention throughout the film, and even non-football fans will have to admire the short clips of his artistry on the pitch.
