Manufacturer Description

Narrated by Pierce Brosnan, this is the official (FIFA sanctioned) World Cup documentary (Germany 2006) soccer. A must-have for all FIFA World Cup soccer fans! The documentary provides an overview of all the tournament's action and drama including never-before-seen footage shot on proprietary 35mm cameras during the Quarter finals up through the Final itself . The film also includes behind-the-scenes, off-the-field footage of the teams and fans.

Soccer fans can re-live the thrills of the most recent world championship on Fifa 2006 World Cup Film: The Grand Finale. Using spare narration to analyze each team's progress through the competition pipeline, Fifa compiles generous clips from a number of matches, beginning with first eliminations. An overview of Australia vs. Japan offers another look at the latter's controversial goal after Australia's goalie was knocked to the ground. There's intense action in Germany vs. Costa Rica and Spain's match against Ukraine; Spain, we're told, is always good but never delivers on its promise. A look at Argentina's passing prowess reveals one play in which the ball was passed 26 times before a (successful) attempt at a goal was made.

From there it's the quarterfinals with, among other matches, England vs. Portugal and Germany vs. Argentina, both passionate games. Semi-finals bring Portugal vs. France and Germany vs. Italy, in which every player seemed to come to life. Finally, Italy vs. France leads to the conclusion of this World Cup odyssey. Along the way, the many penalties accrued by several teams are analyzed, including one game in which they were handed out at an absurd rate, almost shamefully. Player interviews include Fabio Cannavaro and Michael Ballack. --Tom Keogh
