Leo Messi, The Movie – Álex de la Iglesia speaks about the football champion
Gathered in the same restaurant, professors, managers, childhood friends, fellow Barça players, journalists, writers and personalities of the history of football, analyze and speak about Lionel Messi on and off the field, giving an overview of the most significant moments of his life. Seen from the unique perspective of writer and director Álex de la Iglesia, “Messi” recreates the childhood and adolescence of the champion, from his first kick to the ball to the decision to leave Rosario and go to Barcelona. From the difficult separation from his family, to how meeting personalities such as Ronaldinho, Rijkaard, Rexach, and Guardiola played a role in his career. We met the director from Bilbao in Venice, where he presented his documentary film at Venice Days. Football fans will love it, but it will appeal also to non experts, because it speaks about the man and then the player. The film does not have an Italian distribution.
