A biographical drama about the whirlwind beginnings of Brazilian wunderkind Edson Arantes do Nascimento’s football career – better known to the world as Pelé. While growing up in the slums of Sao Paulo, Pelé first stepped onto a football pitch for an official match at age fifteen, and within two years he brought Brazil a World Cup with the deciding goal against the hosting Swedish team.
The young Zimbalist brothers’ biopic is not so much a documentary about the outstanding career of one of the most famous athletes of the 20th century as it is the story of a footballer who couldn’t and wouldn’t play like everyone else – and instead turned his playing style into a world standard.
