Who does not know Robert Lewandowski? After 19 active seasons, 559 goals and 27 titles in three different countries, the answer is nobody. What is perhaps not known about the FC Barcelona striker is his most intimate side and that is what all good football fans -not only the Catalans- will be able to discover on March 31 when Amazon Prime video broadcasts ‘Lewandowski unknown’, the first Polish-produced documentary for the platform.
The film produced by ‘Papaya Films’ under the direction of Maciej Kowalczuk, reviews his extensive sports career, from his beginnings in Poland to his signing for FC Barcelona, going through his successful spell with Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich . In this sense, Lewy will explain in more detail the motivations that led him to do everything possible for the Bavarian club to allow him to join the Blaugrana team.
The review of his sporting career will feature interviews with sports stars and teammates and coaches with whom he has met in his career, including his current coach at Barça, Xavi Hernández, a key player in the Polish decision to want to play at the Spotify Camp Nou. Among those interviewed are also Jürgen Klopp, the coach who took him to Dortmund; Zbigniew Boniek, the best Polish player in all of history; and Thierry Henry, world champion with France and the Champions League with FC Barcelona.
But the film does not only deal with his facet as a footballer. The documentary wants to bring the viewer closer the most private and intimate face of Lewandowski, reviewing the transformation he has had from his childhood to becoming a star. This facet that is most unknown to soccer fans includes interviews with relatives and friends who have also been important in his sports career, beginning with his wife, Anna.
The Polish striker is excited about this project: “Football is my passion. Football has become for me a way of making my dreams come true and I would like my story to be an inspiration for young people to see that nothing is impossible and that all objectives can be achieved”.
