Birth of a Legend

I recently watched the 2016 movie Pelé: Birth of a Legend. Kevin De Paula, as Pelé, is absolutely marvellous in his first and only movie! Stunning graphics, amazing realism, and a cameo appearance by Pelé himself! The credits feature Pelé telling us what happened next. This movie was all for the “ginga” in Brazil. Since 1958, ginga has been the core of Brazil’s play, and made Pelé the world’s #1 footballer.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This film is available on Netflix.
