Diego Maradona

Director: Asif Kapadia

Featuring: Diego Armando Maradona, Corrado Ferlaino, Maria Rosa Maradona.

When Diego Maradona arrived in Naples in 1984, for a world-record fee, the cities cherished football team was transformed from lowly underachievers to Italian and European Champions. Venerated as a God, Maradona was subsumed into a city riddled with corruption, where even the Devil needed bodyguards.

The third film from Asif Kapadia, the Oscar-winning director of Amy, is constructed from over 500 hours of never-before-seen footage. Kapadia skilfully unfurls an incredible story of sporting success, the creation of a myth and a cities obsessive devotion to a breathtaking talent that made him the greatest footballer of his generation.

But there was a price… Diego Maradona is a unique insight into a football genius indomitable sprit and his very human weaknesses.

Assembling over 500 hours of never-before-seen footage, Asif Kapadia, the Oscar-winning director of Amy, forges a story of glory, despair and betrayal.

 

★★★★ “…a dizzying rush that showcases Kapadia’s most stylish film-making to date.” – Donald Clarke, The Irish Times

★★★★ “Kapadia keeps this dynamic tension to the fore, reminding us of Maradona’s roots, juxtaposing the extravagant lifestyle that made him headline news with the hard-knocks reality of his background.” – Mark Kermode, The Observer

 

★★★ “Hero, villain, liar, cheat, champion, scoundrel: this hugely entertaining snorts-and-all biography reveals Maradona to be all these things and more.” Adam Woodward, Little White Lies
