Editorial Reviews

One Night in Turin tells the tale of England s soccer team and the nation s journey from despair to hope. It intimately depicts the leading characters, star players Paul Gascoigne and Chris Waddle, manager Bobby Robson, and team captain Terry Butcher in a celebration of soccer and how it changed the hearts and minds of a whole country. It was Spring 1990, and the London streets were filled with poll tax rioters. England was being crushed by civil strife in the midst of a recession, plus the struggles of an internationally unpopular premier soccer league. While in the meantime, the rest of the world was waking up to a new dawn, the Berlin Wall had fallen, Mandela walked free from prison, and the Soviet Union was in its death throes. The Italia World Cup of 1990 came just in time to celebrate this new world order. The West Germans arrived as favorites to play for the last time as a divided nation, and reigning champions Argentina were led by the pantomime villain Maradona. England was the one guest no one wanted to invite to the party. Over the course of the next six weeks, however, England s small band of brothers led by the reinvigorated Bobby Robson and the brilliant Gascoigne, overcame scandal, political intrigue and even the mighty Dutch. They reached the semi-finals in Turin, home of the Juventus team, and the place in Europe that had the most reason to hate the English after the Heysel disaster of '85 in which 39 Italian and Belgian fans were killed by a stampede of English Liverpool supporters. It is there that they must attempt to overcome the fierce Germans and where success of their mission would depend not on the number of goals scored, but whether the team and their fans could show the world a new face of Englishness.

4.0 out of 5 stars Remembering the heroes July 3, 2014
Format:DVD
The story of England's progress through the 1990 World Cup is known to many and indelibly etched into the minds of its supporters.This DVD will be appreciated by both groups - as a captivating docu-drama that provides many insights into the team, it's players and ultimately the English nation's psyche. I was left feeling that this sad little nation, tearing itself up with social discord, could find unity once again through the struggles of this heroic team.

Judge Josh Rode, DVD Verdict-- It is quite fitting that One Night in Turin is about football (note to Americans: "football" in this context means "soccer") because the show is set up very much like a football match; there is a lot of build up and very little payoff. It is exactly like watching a match with several corners and crossing attempts that ends in a 0-0 draw.

For instance, the English team takes a break between early matches and everyone uses the break to relax except for Paul Gascoigne, or "Gaz"; he has so much energy that he plays tennis with tourists for the entire day off. The narrator warns him to take it easy. There is little doubt in the viewer's mind that his reckless behavior is going to be a factor in the next match. Probably he'll be so worn out that he will run out of gas. But when the next match is shown, it makes no reference back to the tennis incident whatsoever, and no mention is made of Gaz being extra tired or inept or anything. The warning was a narrative red herring.

The same can be said for the match scenes. The film makes a big deal about Coach Bobby Robson switching to a new attack that creates space for the team's stars to do their collective thing, then shows shot after shot either missing the goal or getting caught by the goal keeper. A purported rigorous attack results in a 0-0 draw with Holland and 1-0 wins over their next two opponents.

This isn't really news. Football, hampered as it is by the ridiculous offside rule, is not a high-scoring game. The excitement it generates is similar to baseball; something might happen at any given moment, and for the true fans that anticipation is what keeps them hooked on the game.
