Una squadra (film di Domenico Procacci del 2022)

UNA SQUADRA è un film documentario diretto da Domenico Procacci sulla leggendaria squadra di Coppa Davis di tennis formata da Adriano Panatta, Paolo Bertolucci, Corrado Barazzutti, Tonino Zugarelli e dal capitano non giocatore Nicola Pietrangeli. Il film è incentrato sulla conquista della Davis 1976 nella sofferta finale contro il Cile, causa di infinite polemiche e diventata perfino un caso nazionale, per arrivare all’epopea dei protagonisti che riuscirono a raggiungere la finale altre 3 volte nelle 4 edizioni successive.

Salvo pochi inserimenti, il film è focalizzato sulle testimonianze dei 5 protagonisti menzionati. La vicenda prende le mosse dalla suddetta trasferta a Santiago del Cile che l’opinione pubblica chiedeva a gran voce venisse boicottata a causa della sanguinaria dittatura di Pinochet, dopo che già l’anno precedente non si era disputata la finale tra Sudafrica e India in quanto questi ultimi declinarono l’appuntamento per protestare contro l’apartheid. Si affrontano in egual misura le dinamiche interne alla squadra che vedevano due clan formati da Panatta e Bertolucci da un lato amanti della dolce vita e da Zugarelli e Barazzutti dall’altro invece più pacati e legati alle rispettive famiglie, nonché del rapporto problematico di tutti e 4 con Nicola Pietrangeli, grandissimo ex tennista ma discutibile tecnico pur se vincente, tanto da essere sollevato dall’incarico dopo il torneo del 1977. Si passa poi a dipingere le carriere individuali dei 4 grandi tennisti, tutti arrivati nelle prime 20 posizioni del ranking con Panatta ovviamente grande mattatore, capace sempre nel 1976 di conquistare uno storico bis a Roma e Parigi, per finire con tutta una serie di gustosi aneddoti legati alle 3 finali di Davis perse rispettivamente contro Australia, USA e Cecoslovacchia.

Dopo essere stato presentato al cinema a maggio 2022 in una versione ridotta di circa 100 minuti, l’intero girato di quasi 5 ore venne pubblicato sulla piattaforma Raiplay in 6 capitoli da 50 minuti. Si tratta di una testimonianza preziosissima riguardo una delle conquiste sportive più importanti del nostro paese, con molte parole al veleno ma altrettanta sincerità da parte di tutti gli attori principali. Da vedere anche se non appassionati di tennis.
