Baggio: The Divine Ponytail ending explained – it is the journey that is the most important To find real goals, you have to set for the journey to find it.
This article discusses the ending of the Netflix film Baggio: The Divine Ponytail, so it will contain major spoilers.
Netflix’s Baggio: The Divine Ponytail is a biopic based on the life of Italy’s legendary footballer Roberto Baggio, and it gives an important message about life in the ending.
But to understand the ending, let’s start from the middle of the film. Here, we can see that Baggio converts to Buddhism to find hope in his deteriorating life after a fatal injury. His friend Maurizio tells him to write down his life goal and to visualize it. We see that he writes down his life goal to be selected for the national team, and later, he is chosen for the national team. He fulfills his dream, but is that all?
No, it’s not. After that goal comes true, his next goal is to win the World Cup against Brazil. But in that process, he fails to do so. Instead, he misses the penalty and loses the World Cup against Brazil. From that moment, he questions his target. His objectives have somehow gone into disarray.
He asks his friend and manager, Vittorio (who is also a Buddhist), what he wrote as his goal? He answers that he had written many things, but it does not matter — what’s important is the journey and discovering the real goals along the way.
In the end, Baggio discovers his real goal; to give people pleasure from his football. Thus, in the future, when he encounters his fans, he finds respect and love. Of course, he doesn’t win the World Cup, nor is he selected for the next one, but the love from his supporters rekindles his desire to work hard and achieve this newfound goal of himself.
The ending of Baggio: The Divine Ponytail tells us the importance of the journey of life. In the path of the journey, we find the real us, our actual goals.
