Diego Maradona

Documentary, Sport 2h 10m 2019

Having never won a major tournament, ailing football giant SSC Napoli had criminally underachieved. In July 1984, Diego Maradona arrived in Naples for a world-record fee and for seven years all hell broke loose. Blessed on the field but cursed off it, the charismatic Argentine quickly led Naples to their first-ever title.

In a dysfunctional city where the devil needed bodyguards, Maradona became bigger than God himself. This wild and unforgettable story of God-given talent, glory, despair and betrayal is the third film from Asif Kapadia, the Oscar-winning director of Amy and Senna, and is constructed from over 500 hours of never-before-seen footage from Maradona’s personal archive, used with the legend’s full support.
