A Film About Diego Maradona? Yes Please.

Altitude Film:

On 5th July 1984, Diego Maradona arrived in Naples for a world-record fee and for seven years all hell broke loose.  The world’s most celebrated football genius and the most dysfunctional city in Europe were a perfect match for each other.

Maradona was blessed on the field but cursed off it; the charismatic Argentine, quickly led Naples to their first-ever title.  It was the stuff of dreams.

But there was a price… Diego could do as he pleased whilst performing miracles on the pitch, but when the magic faded he became almost a prisoner of the city

Diego Maradona (Hand Of God, anyone?) is undoubtedly one of the greatest soccer players ever. He’s also one of the most tragic characters in soccer. His story is nothing short of compelling. If you love the Beautiful Game anywhere near as much as i do, this is a must see.
