Pelé: Birth of a Legend has the heart to inspire, nothing more is needed to make you watch the film. (by ThisIsJammy)
Pelé: Birth of a Legend follows the life of Pelé's meteoric rise from the slums of Sao Paulo to leading Brazil to its first World Cup victory at the age of 17.Needless to say this film is same like any other biographical drama that focus on the star's raise from bottom to top made with the intention only to inspire you. The director tries nothing hard to focus anything but a biographical drama.The story inspires you every bit like any other inspirational film would, From the childhood to winning the 1958 world cup the wish to succeed the struggles, the leap of faith, the support and <more>
love from your parents, the difference we have from the others which should be accepted to make it best, the final winning smile. These clinched moments keep you entertained throughout the film and 1 hour 47 minutes is worth spending.Unlike the usual sports films the film focuses on something that is different from others 'The Heritage', The need to keep us in the space we are comfortable to and the adaptation from others which aren't comfortable of is itself a good small message that can be conveyed.Background score by A.R Rahman feels a little bit underplayed, scoring music for an Hollywood film ARR has set a benchmark with Slumdog millionaire but the expectation is too high for him to satisfy our greed. One of my favorite themes from the film 'Oh Ginga' comes only at the end of the film and with the way it escalates the theme could have been used in the other parts too.Concluding it, Not calling is better or worse than any other sport film, Pelé: Birth of a Legend is an yet an another clinched sport film that is made to inspire us and does as promised.
The direction cinematography and music is just amazing. It is emotional and motivational.Didn't know about Pele so much before .Too good I am going to watch this movie whenever i fell down ..Thanks a lot.the movie was so emotional at times made me cry.The whole movie moves in a flow and you feel how much pain he has to take to get there.The movie also shows the situation of Brazil during 1950's.Music by A.R.Rahman was magical it blended so well with the theme.My respect for Pele has grown too much.The world cup scenes are accurate comparing with the score board of 1958 world cup.Hope <more>
to see more such movies .The movie is little bit similar to "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag" if anybody of you have seen it.I recommend you to watch the trailer first and then the movie "Pele"
Wonderful film not just for Football fans (by nicholls_les)
This is a truly wonderful film that all the family can watch. Kevin de Paula is excellent as Pele and all the supporting cast were just brilliant. the early parts of the movie were very entertaining and showed Pele's early life with his friends and the antics they got up to. There are some truly funny moments and also some sadness. The actors who played members of the Brazilian football team were first class and looked like they could genuinely play, but Kevin de Paula's skills were outstanding and it was like looking at the real Pele.Over all a wonderful movie about a man for whom <more>
the word legend really does apply.Loved this movie so much and I am sure I will watch it many times.
Consider - how interesting can a movie be about the success of a sporting legend? Obviously the material is begging for some musical montages, and it does not disappoint. I mean, we're talking a powerful cultural legacy here - football and Brazilian culture and music This movie serves up a full platter of sentimentality and showmanship, not to mention an army of condescending Swedes. Simply put, some of these scenes are majestic in their color and rhythm, and there is a palpable feeling that the creators of this felt passionately about the subject matter. The simple themes of <more>
transcendence, struggle, and family topos? often fade behind the theme of simple, graceful, perfect movement. How many movies about sports movies have succeeded with such a simple, yet grand, exposition of the sport itself?I watched it in dubbed English I wonder what was lost in translation? I may watch it again in Portuguese. To be fair I'm an American who has recently been bitten by the soccer bug, so I have a profound appreciation for the elegance of the sport. I found that some scenes motivated this feeling as well, with a sense of sublime cinematic portrayals of the beautiful game. Surely this movie is marketing for the Rio Olympics. It doesn't matter. This is a very beautiful movie, and I hope that many Americans watch it, as this younger generation has probably not even heard of Pele, let along seen him play or is it dance? .
Big fan of pelé and thought the movie was great.Good way of showing his live and was also shocked those all the things he had been through.
Classic Sport Film: Pele (by arthur_tafero)
This is the best soccer film ever made by far, and one of the best sport films ever made because of several factors; the production values are much better than the vast majority of other sport films and the list of great sport films is pretty short: they would include 42 Jackie Robinson , Jim Thorpe, All American, Field of Dreams, A League of Their Own, Fear Strikes Out Jimmy Piersall , Knute Rockne, Rudy, and the granddaddy of all sport films: Pride of the Yankees. There have been a handful of other good sports films, but generally speaking the afore-mentioned are the best-known and <more>
well-remembered. One could also add Babe to the list because of the great job done by John Goodman. The star of this is not the actors although the actors, especially the father, give excellent performances. No, the star of this film is the style of soccer that Brazil plays. In American basketball, it would be akin to shake and bake, a description of black playground basketball style that was immortalized by players like Earl Monroe, Allen Iverson, and even Pete Maravich, the best white shake and bake player of all time. Unlike these hot dogs, who seldom won any championships, Pele won three. That is what puts him above these others. There are all-time greats in every sport who color outside the box, and Pele is the greatest of those. The characterization of the father is one of the best elements of the film and the mango sequences were mesmerizing. Highly Recommended.
This is more than just a mere football movie (by saurabhjustu)
PELE is probably the biggest name in the soccer history that has shaped & shifted the current playing style of modern day game. The extravagant career speaks for itself. The movie shows us the making & coming to be of PELE.I see a lot pf people saying this movie is predictable, not so good & what not. to all of them & most importantly to all of u i say, this movie is more than just a football movie. Not every movie is supposed to be a thriller or an Avenger movie. simple things in life have a way of getting to us.This movie is about small & humble beginnings, its about <more>
friendship , its about believing in one self, taking the risk. Movie shows us that is does not matter if u have all the resources or opportunities in the world. if u keep at it, if u find something that you are passionate about & stick to it, day by day, night after night, the results speak for itself. Movie has amazing moments, really great camera work. one of the best for all the soccer movies out there. Even if one know nothing about the legend that PELE is, once you are into the movie, you cant resist to feel the journey he is going to make in life. I was finding myself constantly tears of joy rolling down my cheek coz i was hooked into the movie. had soo many of those watering your eyes moments that once the movie was over, i was filled with joy and happiness to have witness such a good work of art.Acting & direction is simple & stunning. camera-work is amazing , specially in those moments you want to fell the greatness of the legend, the movie gives you that.I'll keep going back to watching this movie , just to feel that joy of watching something beautiful in the making again & again.
If only every film could have the star in the audience! (by elyobj)
I was invited to the world premier of this film at the TriBeCa Film Festival, in New York. I say invited, as if my life is some sort of glamorous affair. In reality, a mate at work couldn't make it, and he knew I'd have no actual plans, so I eagerly obliged.Just before the movie started, the 350 or so people in the audience got what they wanted, as the man himself stood up and raised his hand to the instagram happy crowd. Just knowing Pele was in the audience gave the room a little extra energy.Perhaps a little naive, I knew a little about Pele's playing career but little of the <more>
man and, the journey to what he became. The film follows his early years with friends at home, up until he becomes 17 and plays for Brazil in the 1958 World Cup in Sweden. There's enough humour, big laughs, drama, and passion in the film that will translate to fans familiar with the legend and those who may have only heard of him.The real treat, were the applause, and cheering from the audience when the on-screen Pele scored. His hand went up in recognition and the cheers got louder. I was pleased that despite the film keeping my attention he may have nodded off, he's knocking on a bit.I waited outside afterward and managed to get a signed Santos shirt from him, which kinda gave me goose pimples, and rammed home the magnitude of who this man was, and what he had done for the game. My dad would have been proud. Sadly the shirt is the guys from work, so I'm currently deciding whether to buy a replica shirt and say I didn't get it, or beginning to practice the man's signature! That's okay, isn't it...I did snap a selfie. Insta - Jamesbydesign
Good for for the entire family (by digitalbeachbum)
This PG rated movie is about the greatest futbol soccer in USA player that ever lived. Pele. It covers his youth, in the slums, learning to play futbol in the streets using socks and other clothing stuffed together to make a futbol so they could play. Then progresses through hardships encountered on his way to playing for one of the many futbol teams.What most Americans won't know is that in Brazil as with all futbol countries there are massive leagues on multiple levels of the society. They all play against each other or against other Latin American teams for various awards and cups. <more>
Pele played for a team called Santos.From Santos he was picked, like other great players from other teams, to play on the National Team. I don't like that they don't show this process in the movie because it shows the level of competition. We are talking thousands of players rather than a few dozen which they show in the movie.The movie doesn't show any love interests. This biopic covers only his youth and his journey to play in the 1958 World Cup. Then the movie ends and gives short mentions to the what he did afterwards. Then there is a collection of his game skills shown in a small window as the credits roll.Overall it was pleasurable to watch and I knew that he would have a small cameo in the movie. Did you see him?8/10 stars for good clean entertainment
