Francesco Totti, our namesake and patron saint, has certainly had an interesting start to his post-playing days. While his awkward partnership with Monchi ended disastrously for everyone involved, Totti has spent his golden years travelling with his family, dropping Cristian off at Trigoria and even starting his own talent/scouting agency. His “retirement” has certainly been busy, but for the first time in his life, he's living in relative anonymity.
Late last week, Totti dropped the official trailer for his documentary Mi Chiamo Francesco Totti, which is expected in Italian cinemas on October 19th. The documentary, which uses the premise of Totti watching all the highs and lows of his career while staring into a mirror before playing his final match in 2017, seems like it will cover the entire range of Totti's legendary career.
From his earliest days kicking a ball to his adolescent debut to his gut-wrenching goodbye in front of a crowded Olimpico, this should give us an unprecedent look into the mind and heart of Francesco Totti—it's a must-see for any Roma fan.
If and when I can get my hands on it, expect a full review.
