Zidane, un Portrait du 21e Siècle (Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait) Reviews
Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait is exactly what the title implies: a portrait! One of a genious engaged in his work. Yet, the action shown is not Zidane at his best. There are no magical feints nor brilliant goals and the match is not an important one. And that is the interesting part of the movie! To see someone like Zidane do what's trivial to him. It's like watching an incredible painter sketch... It can be quite boring, but it shows the real relation between him and his art.
The technique applied perfectly captures this confrontation. From the sprawling soundtrack by the post-rock band Mogwai to the assorted interview bits.
Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait shouldn't be discerned as a documentary, but as an art film to be enjoyed at all.
