The documentary was released to the public four months after the 80th anniversary of the King of Brazil. For better or worse, about a phenomenal performance, untouched by another player, about the extraordinary impact he made on tens of millions of Brazilians and hundreds of millions of people around the world.

But also with the inherent human shadows, including the silence associated with the military-political system in which Brazilians suffered. In the film, Pele is honest and admits that he was content with his countrymen enjoying the football he dreamed of and which he was able to play. “I had problems during my career because people confused politics with football. I’d be lying if I told you I didn’t hear anything. I had heard, but I wasn’t sure. I think we have made more than the politicians who get paid to promote Brazil to the world.Pele says in the movie.

  • Recently, former great Romania international Gica Popescu was asked if Mbappe could outperform Pele: “never! Mbappe does not have the brilliance of Pele, incomparable“.

The documentary “Pele” is available on Netflix.

“Pele did not make a difference, he was the difference”

Pele didn’t make a difference, he was the differenceIt is the slogan of the movie. Not many Romanians have been able to see him play, but those who saw him especially in the Brazil-Romania match, 3-2, in Guadalajara, in 1970, when he scored two goals for us, say he was fantastic. That’s what they do in the movie!

It was Pele’s last world championship. He had returned to the national team under pressure from the political regime, which expelled coach Saldanha to bring a name agreed upon with Pele, Mario Lobo Zagallo.

Pele then won his third world title, a performance no one else had achieved before. Neither before nor after.

Little Edson Arantes do Nascimento promised his father a world title. I gave him a 3!

Pele also promised his father, Dondinho, a soccer player, that he would raise the cup over his head. He was only 9 years old at the time, but he kept his promise! And not once, but three times. unique!

Around the time he became a polisher to help his widowed family with money his injured father couldn’t bring home, “Son of Dondinho” saw his father as the greatest soccer player in the world.

My dad was crying (A number after the national tragedy of 1950, when Uruguay won the world title in the final with Brazil) And to prevent him, I told him not to grieve anymore! I will win the World Cup for BrazilPele says.Trust yourself, son. On the field, you are the samewas his father’s response, leaving him in the mind of the future football player.

  • Pele scored 1,279 goals in 1,363 matches, which is a world record according to the Guinness Book of Records. He played 93 matches for his country, scoring 77 goals

The documentary film “Pelé” presents the history of the four world championships in which the great player participated

“Pele” is more than a documentary. It is also the story of Brazil, whose people, in the 1960s, found their joy in the football played by Edson Arantes do Nascimento.

When Brazil won the world title in 1958, the phrase “joga bonito” appeared. Pele and his colleagues showed that football can be complete fun!

The “Carioca” team managed to defend its title in 1962, when Pele was injured early in the competition. He was already considered the best soccer player in the world, and people were very disappointed to see him on the field.

The film also shows the national upheaval caused by the failure of 1966, when Brazil left the final tournament in groups. There were matches in which the players of Hungary and Portugal chased after “King Pele”.

Through Pele, who had never played in Europe, Brazil felt that it could fight the West, the rich countries, while the situation in the country was getting worse due to the political context. He was the one who gave Brazilians hope and joy in a difficult period in the history of Brazil. “What you feel after winning is not joy, but comfortPele explains in the film.

The documentary about Pele shows how millions of people rejoiced when he scored the 1,000th goal, as well as how a divided nation was united under one flag, which this footballer “waved”.

In 1970, many said “Pele is not the same anymore“But he showed what he can do. Pictures of Pele wearing people’s arms on people’s arms wearing a sombrero provided by local fans are legendary and can be found in the film.
