Hoezo in KINO

Not the film itself, but the audience is what makes a film ‘cult’. While it’s too early to tell whether Mi chiamo Francesco Totti by Alex Infascelli will go down in history as a cult film, the documentary turned out to be the crowd pleaser at IFFR 2021: the film won the BankGiro Loterij Audience Award at the June edition of the festival.

Storyline

IFFR has a long-running love affair with football: from Wim Wenders’ Die Angst des Tormanns beim Elfmeter at the very first edition of the festival, to Johan Cruyff, who attended the world premiere in Rotterdam of En un momento dado, a film about his years in Barcelona. Then this year there was Mi chiamo Francesco Totti, a retrospect of the more than 25 years Francesco Totti spent at AS Roma. The attacker never played for another club.
