One Night in Turin (DVD)
Advantages: Excellent documentary on how England came so close.
Disadvantages: It still hurts...Have the tissues to hand.
One Night In Turin is an amazing documentary about the England team World Cup run in Italia 90. It charts the battle from the poor first qualifier games up until the crashing defeat in Turin on 4th July 1990.
The documentary shows how much football has changed in the last 20 years. It is before the Premiership and pampered players being paid millions. It also reminds us of the dark times when hooliganism was the main word associated with English football. I think the shambolic players of the most recent World Cup should be made to watch this documentary and hang their heads in shame.
When said battle at the beginning of this review I mean battle. One Night in Turin has an amazing voice over by Gary Oldman that is reminiscent of the documentaries charting Wars on the History channel. This gives it a dramatic edge that you will not see in many other football documentaries.
Italia 90 has always had a special place in my heart it was the first World Cup I truly remember and is was the first time I experienced true heart break. Being a geordie it is also special as the main players in the battle were Sir Bobby Robson (R.I.P) and Gazza. Who will ever forget his tears - I shed a tear everytime I see the game footage myself. Every time I watch the game I still have the tiniest bit of hope that we will win - I know this is ridiculous but it is so absorbing.
This game brings about a level of passion that I have never felt for any England team since.
I have not read the book One Night in Turin so maybe my review would have been different with the comparison. Thanks to the other reviewers on Dooyoo I will be reading it and let you know.....
This is a brilliant DVD for anyone who wants to reminisce on just how close we came or is maybe a bit of a massochist. Would make a great present for the football fan in our life but ensure you buy them some tissues too.
Summary: One Night In Turin is an amazing documentary about the England team World Cup run in Italia 90.
