Im probably one of the few people that wanted to see this dvd becouse of Kusturica, not Maradona. I have probably watched all his movies and I concider him as Europe's most gifted director. I also grew up watching Maradona as a kid and he was one of my biggest childhood idols so when I saw this dvd in the store I just had to rent it.
Now to the movie. Its not a "usual" documentary about some famous sport star... its a documentary about Maradona MADE BY Kusturica. If you watched any of Kusturica movies, you wil understand what I mean. Its not your typical comedy, drama or whatever... its Kusturica. Some people like he`s movies other don`t.
Its same with this documentary. Kusturica shows Maradona as a person he is. There is lots of talk about politics, socialism, USA, drugs, Castro and so on. There are some hidden gems in the documentary like when Kustsurica drows comparation to some of he`s movies, but you have to understand the humor to get the point.
I think Kusturica did a great job, particularly by making Maradona to open him self and talk about he`s failings. Maradona said later in Cannes that nobady has managed to reach inside him as Kusturica did and tell what he was going through.
The humor is there, the music is great and if you like Kusturica and Maradona Im sure you gona like this dvd too.
Sorry for my poor english.
