John Doyle Globe and Mail There will never be a player with the same aura, and the film acts a perfect reintroduction (even for non-soccer fans) to the cauldron and complexity of European soccer. Jun 8, 2021 Full Review Ben Kenigsberg New York Times Even the soccer is perfunctory. May 26, 2021 Full Review JK Sooja Common Sense Media Fans and non-fans alike might expect more closure (and redemption) to the scattered story arc. Rated: 3/5 Aug 11, 2021 Full Review Roger Moore Movie Nation Mopey...incomplete...this isn't so much an unflattering portrait of a great "artist" of the soccer pitch, as one that isn't the least bit flattering either. Rated: 1.5/4 Jun 11, 2021 Full Review Ricardo Gallegos La Estatuilla Fútbol fans will find in Baggio: The Divine Ponytail an entertaining biographical film with a simple message of overcoming and insistence.

Cristian s Para los que ya conocemos la historia de Roberto Baggio como que le falta algo porque podría haber sido mucho mejor, igual no deja de ser un buen film en general. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/27/22 Full Review Audience Member The movie is clearly low budget but the balance in the narration is remarkable, as long as the sensibility of the director. The casting and actors performances are really interesting. If you are into soccer you need to see this movie. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Racconto biografico e molto intimo di uno dei personaggi sportivi italiani più amati di sempre. Si sceglie di concentrarsi totalmente sugli aspetti che hanno caratterizzato la vita del campione fuori dal campo; dal rapporto col padre a quello con gli allenatori, dalla nazionale agli infortuni. Purtroppo viene meno totalmente il racconto della sua carriera; di cui a parte brevissimi tratti non viene raccontato nulla. A mio avviso un peccato mortale visto il tipo di personaggio. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Heartfelt film about one of the most impressive and inspiring soccer players of my lifetime! Loved the human dynamics throughout, and the beautiful way the film expressed Baggio's family and religious relationships. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Espectacular,parte de la historia de Roberto Baggio 10/10 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member This soccer movie was pretty good. Andrea Arcangeli, Valentina Belle, Thomas Trabacchi, and the rest of the cast did a good job in this movie. This true story about the life of one of the greatest soccer players of all time was dramatic, inspirational, and sad. It's about trying to accomplish your ultimate goals in life and trying to recover from the stressful times so you can overcome the odds. If you're a Netflix member, you should watch this movie sometime. You'll probably enjoy it. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews
