Title: One Night in Turin The story of the history-making Nottingham Forest team that won back-to-back European Cups in and , led by the mercurial Brian Clough and his assistant Peter Taylor. A feature-length theatrical documentary on the life of Paul Gascoigne , one of the most naturally gifted footballers of all time, delving deep into his psyche, vulnerabilities, fears and triumphs.
If by some blessing of youth you didn't witness it the first time round, the Italia '90 semi-final against West Germany that famously saw Gazza blub, the football gods rain misery on England's mesmerising football parade, and a frankly heart-sinking penalty miss from the sausage factory worker turned no pressure international footballer, with the weight of a nation visibly swinging from his low-slung neck Chris Waddle , then you might want to see One Night In Turin. Like some of you reading this, I was there, albeit immaturely, the first time round. In some respects, the answer to that comes through the well-pitched tones of Gary Oldman, who masterfully treads the path of Pete Davies' novel of the same name. Apparently, Davies witnessed the action and reaction of the build up and the world cup itself that we're treated to here. But if that's the case, you can't help feel that this film adaptation somewhat misses the poignancy of Davies' typed constructions and careful narration, impossible as it is for a visual art to fully present the verbal.
One Night in Turin. James Erskine 92min. Review Our Score. The Italia 90 World Cup finals revived England's love affair with football. Yet, going into the tournament, few had much faith in either manager Bobby Robson or his under-performing team. However, as James Erskine recalls in this competent documentary, the side survived an indifferent group stage to progress to the semi-finals against West Germany.
Before the Premier League and multi-million pound salaries, in England 'football' was a dirty word. The game was in disgrace, the fans, hooligans, the nation, it seemed, were all played out. Then there was Italia '90 - The World Cup - a shot at redemption. But this was no ordinary World Cup and no ordinary time. The manager, Sir Bobby Robson, was under intense media scrutiny, and his team described as 'donkeys'. Yet over six short weeks, through their heroic exploits they united a nation, coming within a heart beat of reaching the World Cup Final.
The football landscape of the time is almost unrecognisable and Erskine wisely opts to dispense with any modern interviews to add context but instead use solely archive footage. Astonishingly, much of the opening footage of the poll tax riots was never shown on British TV as it was deemed too violent. That match against West Germany was watched in Britain by 26 million viewers, at that time the record number of viewers for any previous sporting event. Football, bloody hell. With rare footage and a soundtrack comprised of period classics, this is essential viewing for anyone who is daring to dream and thinks England might just relive those glory days over the next few weeks.
