Pele who is the hero of Brazil
5 March 2021 | by erdemyurdanurSee all my reviews

I wish it was a mini series like the Last Dance instead of a movie. It could say more about his personal life and also political life in his time. But still, it was very informative for me and I don't agree with other bad comments about telling politics. Football is never separated from politics in any country, so without telling about politics, it is impossible to understand Pele or any other players.
