The Weekend Film Series Presents: MESSI
Spain / 93 minutes / Rated: Suitable for all ages (Spain)
In Spanish with English subtitles
Viewed from director Alex de la Iglesia’s unique perspective, Messi recreates the player’s childhood and teenage years, from his very first steps — with a football always at his feet — through to the decision to leave Rosario for Barcelona, separation from his family, and the part played in his career by individuals such as Ronaldinho, Rijkaard, Rexach and Guardiola. Shot in Buenos Aires, Rosario and Barcelona, Messi brings us closer to this FC Barcelona genius, through the views of great footballing legends such as Menotti, Maradona, Valdano and Cruyff, and the people who have been with him throughout his career. The film also features archive pictures, and previously unseen interviews and home videos – and recreates key moments in his life. It’s the meteoric rise of a boy who never stopped running after the ball or pursuing his dream.
