“Naples and Maradona were made for each other…It was both the best and worst place for him.”
Made by the multi award winning team responsible for the excellent “AMY” & “SENNA”, “Diego Maradona” tells the story (warts & all) of the Argentinian football genius Diego Armando Maradona during his spell at the Italian Serie A Club SSC Napoli. His notable on-field achievements are covered referencing some amazing archival match footage, but Asif Kapadia’s film is as much about Maradona’s gradual decline, charting his problems with drug abuse and his relationship with one of Naples’ most notorious crime syndicates. The accompanying 2019 UK quad film poster to promote the release features a fantastic close up Maradona head shot of the god-like football maestro with a perceived halo. The advertising campaign was very low key and the UK film poster that accompanied the extremely limited cinema release is truly scarce. Guaranteed original, it is presented in excellent rolled (as issued) condition it appears almost faultless with minimal handling wear and represents a truly fine piece of desirable and collectable original film movie, sports, football memorabilia for one of the sport’s greatest and most controversial personalities.
