Original Title:

Mr Calzaghe

Professing punchdrunk love for its subject, Vaughan Sivell’s involving if sentimental bio-doc pays tribute to the indestructible Joe Calzaghe — 46 wins, 32 knock-outs, zero defeats. With stats as heroic as that, you wonder where the drama lies, but Sivell explores a fascinating dynamic: the seemingly incompatible bond between the Italian Dragon and his trainer-father Enzo, a former bass player whose musicality was absorbed into Calzaghe Jr.’s fighting style. The fight footage is belting, but it’s the unique, deep father-son connection that really makes the heart pound.
