Legend Roberto Baggio is immortal in the story of Italy. Apart from the career ridden by injury, Ballon d’Or Pizzer in 1993. He is known in the country as Raffaello del Calcio; Raphael Football. “I want people, from the film about me, to understand the difficulties faced.
The importance of reaching the end of the road. However, the Director of Director of Letizia Lamartire made with consultation from footballers. It did not have some of the main ingredients of good biopics the most important, a straightforward story.
We were introduced to young Baggio when the film began:
Departing to achieve the dream of scoring against Brazil in the World Cup final. Time Baggio in Fiorentina, on the Italian national team.
And in Brescia, giving a spectator at a glance his personal life. However, the task of Mammoth this film promised, cramming. About two decades of football life in the duration of a short film, was his biggest fall.
Baggio: Divine Ponytail has difficulty convincing viewers about its seriousness. In trying to portray various struggles that the Protagonist must navigate, the narrative loses direction.
Is that about a father who accepts his son’s ambition? Is the struggle of players to overcome a severe injury that disturbs their career? Or is it about spiritual trips that help Baggio overcome? The trauma and emotional pain because he cannot meet his ‘destiny’?
Then, another critical incident from his career that the film ignored. Such as the magic recovery of the initial injury facing Baggio at the age of 18. After tearing the anterior crucial ligament (ACL) and the right knee meniscus.
Because the doctors put 220 stitches without anti-inflammatory drugs due to allergies. The tragic incident made him famous, begging his mother, “If you love me, then kill me.”
The script was also completely hidden. All above his duty at Juventus:
Where he won European footballer this year. And the FIFA World Player of the Year Awards, and AC Milan, claimed. “There is no place for poets in modern football”. The absence of these parts made a gaping hole that blared the audience.
Instead, the biopic chose to focus on the relationship between Baggio and the National Team Manager of Arrigo Sacchi. Although there are some of the better film conflicts. It is only because the ease slides into a forgotten cliche in sports-in-all.
The film also made an inadequate representation of Buddhist philosophy. By reducing self-help spells and independence issues instead of exploring the nuances and connection.
Initial education Director Lamartire in music shines through films with songs and music as background scores. The film alluded to classical American rock bands such as Eagles and featuring a soundtrack consisting of Vasco Rossi, black and Oasis buttons, and original songs at Roberto Baggio written for the film by Italian Singer-Songwriter Diodato.
Film editing, which combines original footage. With a scene that is reconnected, sharp, and commendable.
Camerawork can also be recognized smoothly. Alternating between long shots and middle closeup. However, for character-based stories, it’s shocking to see the lack of closeups.
Acting by Andrea Arcangeli and Valentina Bellè suffered due to sub-par scripts. As much as they should be faced with recurrent difficulties. This makes it harder for audiences to empathize with the characters.
When the monologue operates. On the climax scene from the 1994 World Cup final penalty. “You do not understand where you are, what happened”.
Like Baggio, film expectations may have a more tremendous enthusiasm than what it gives. The lines summarize how the audience will feel when these biopics are suitable for children looking for instantaneous inspiration.
