Filmed over 14 months with unprecedented access into the inner circle of the man and the sport, this is the first official and fully authorised film of one of the most celebrated figures in football.
For the first time ever, the world gets vividly candid and un-paralleled, behind-closed-doors access to the footballer, father, family-man and friend in this moving & fascinating documentary. Through in-depth conversations, state of the art football footage and never before seen archival footage, the film gives an astonishing insight into the sporting and personal life of triple Ballon D’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo at the peak of his career.
From the makers of ‘Senna’ and ‘Amy’, Ronaldo takes audiences on an intimate and revealing journey of what it’s like to live as an iconic athlete in the eye of the storm.
In the Messi v. Ronaldo debate I always go Crisitano Ronaldo. Some people may vehemently disagree with me but I refuse to bend. I completely agree that Lionel Messi is one of the best soccer players to have ever lived. There’s no debate to that. However, if I was building a team and the team needed to win in their first season I would take Cristiano Ronaldo in his prime over Lionel Messi in his prime. He is such an exciting player to watch and I refuse to get pulled into statistics and analytics because I know that no matter what anyone else claims, with whatever statistics they have to back them up, it will not dissuade me from claiming Cristiano Ronaldo is the world’s best soccer player.
Since he is arguably the world’s best soccer player it makes sense that he is having a high quality documentary made about him. Yet, it seems a little weird the documentary is being made before his career ends. Don’t get me wrong I am still going to watch and enjoy it but I wish they had waited. The best thing about documentaries is the story arc and yet his documentary takes place while he is still in the prime of his career. It would have been more interesting had it been made a decade after he retired so we could relive his greatness. Oh well I’m still seeing it on opening day.
