One Night in turin is the story of the England football team’s efforts to win the World Cup in Italy in 1990, when manager Bobby Robson and a side inspired by the flair of Paul Gascoigne made it through to the semi-finals against West Gemany before losing on penalties. The film suggests that this was a tournament and a game that changed the country for the better, with the team’s achievements bringing new pride and self-respect at a time of recession, poll tax riots, mad cow disease, and the misery of football hooliganism. In Britain, 26 million viewers watched the semi-final in Turin, double the numbers for any previous sporting event. And when Gazza wept at the end of the game in disappointment and defeat, he showed a vulnerable side to the English that wasn’t apparent in the hooligans’ running battles with the Carabinieri. Although the film is about more than football, it’s really a film for fans. All the memorable moments from the tournament are here: David Platt’s last-gasp winner against Belgium, Gary Lineker’s equaliser against West Germany, Stuart Pearce and Chris Waddle’s agonising penalty misses and, of course, Gazza’s tears. It’s all set to a fantastic soundtrack, with music from The Stone Roses, James, Adamski and, inevitably, Luciano Pavarotti's Nessun Dorma.
