One Night in Turin- Trailer

Labels: , ,

Spring 1990, and the London streets are torn up by poll tax rioters. With an unpopular premier and in the midst of the recession, England is torn apart by civil strife. Meanwhile, the rest of the world wakes up to a new dawn, the Berlin Wall has fallen, Mandela walks free from prison, and the Soviet Union is in its death throes. And to celebrate this new world order, there is Italia '90. The West Germans, playing for the last time as a divided nation, arrive as favourites, reigning champions Argentina are led by the pantomime villain Maradona and England, they are the one guest no one wants to invite to the party. Their football is medieval, their manager considered a national joke, and their fans hooligans. Locked away behind barbed wire fences on the remote island of Sardinia, the players, managers and fans must overcome their own demons, in order to see the rebirth of their reputations, of English football and even the perception of England. Over the course of six weeks, led by the reinvigorated Bobby Robson and the mercurial Gascoigne, this small band of brothers overcome scandal, political intrigue and even the mighty Dutch, to reach a semi-final in Turin - the home of Juventus, and the place in Europe that has the most reason to hate the English after the Heysel disaster of '85 - where they must attempt to overcome the mighty Germans. But the success of their mission will depend not on the number of goals scored, but whether the team and their fans can show the world a new face of Englishness.
