Maradona by Kusturica

Just watched this documentary about the great man. It was filmed by the Serbian film-maker/artist/musician, Emir Kusturica.

It gives a valuable insight into Maradona. Especially his political beliefs and his thoughts after battling cocaine addiction.

There is more than a bit of George bashing, and Prince Charles and Tony Blair get the treatment too. Which is no bad thing.

Kustarica follows Diego around Buenos Aires (his home and the the Bombanera) and also to Napoli and the former Yugoslavia.

3 Millones Documentary trailer

“3 Millones” (3 million) is a documentary about a father and son that follow the Uruguayan national football team during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

It’s a refreshing look at the football matches, supporters and African hosts. The father is a famous singer and musician, Jaime Ross and his son, Yamandu is a photographer.

Both are passionate fans and this comes across brilliantly (although the match reports are very, very biased).

Comes with English subtitles on itunes.

ps.The population of Uruguay is 3 million
