Description

In an uncharacteristic move to documentary, director Álex de la Iglesia (who also directed MSPIFF 2016’s My Big Night) brings us a celebration of soccer star Lionel Messi, one of the best players to ever set foot on the field. De la Iglesia sets up this documentary like a dinner party—with Messi’s friends and colleagues. He choreographs a fluid conversation on the personal and professional of this electrifying player, all interspersed with captivating footage of Messi’s jaw-dropping skills, from VHS recordings of his early games as a kid to expertly edited plays with FC Barcelona.
