All of us have our own particular memories of this year's FIFA World Cup™. Whether it be or Argentina's stunning 26-pass move that led to Esteban Cambiasso's goal against Serbia-Montenegro, Ronaldo becoming the leading goalscorer in FIFA World Cup history with his fifth minute strike against Ghana or Zinedine Zidane's now infamous headbutt on Marco Materazzi in the Final - this was a tournament that will live long in the memory.
The official 2006 FIFA World Cup Film entitled 'The Grand Finale' not only portrays the excitement of the matches of Germany 2006, but also uniquely captures the emotions, excitement and tension from the initial knockout stages through to the Final. This is football as it has never been seen before.
The close-up, intimate style of the documentary provides a compelling look at the highs and lows of the players and fans as they face the triumphs and adversities of the beautiful game. It also goes further than just highlighting the best moments of the tournament - it provides an inside perspective on the feelings of the players, their coaches, the fans and the officials.
Featuring exclusive interviews with Didier Drogba, Horacio Elizondo, Thierry Henry, Jens Lehmann, Michael Ballack, Hidetoshi Nakata and 2006 FIFA World Player of the Year Fabio Cannavaro, the film is narrated by former 007 Pierce Brosnan and directed by Michael Apted, who collaborated on the 1999 James Bond film 'The World is Not Enough.'
The film provides viewers with unseen and exclusive footage of the tournament - different camera angles, incredible sounds from the pitch and an insight into the colour provided by the fans on the terraces.
"I am sure that the film will rapidly become a collector's item because of its convincing and creative approach to some of the best moments the FIFA World Cup had to offer," said FIFA President Joseph S. Blatter.
