About the Film
Acclaimed as one of the greatest football films ever made, Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait is a unique real-time study of one of the beautiful game's greatest icons: Zinedine Zidane. Over the course of a single match between Real Madrid vs. Villareal before 80,000 fans at the Santiago Bernabéu stadium, 17 movie cameras under the direction of acclaimed cinematographer Darius Khondji were set around the playing field focusing solely on Zidane. Featuring the legend's thoughts and observations on his playing career and a majestic score by Scottish rock band Mogwai, this extraordinary feature - conceived and co-directed by Turner Prize-winning artist Douglas Gordon and French artist Philippe Parreno - catches in stunning detail all the drama and excitement of a football genius in action.
Artistic portrayal of a football great
I really enjoyed the cinematography of this film. It was an extremely unique and emotional ride through the pivotal role of the midfield maestro during a match he played for Real Madrid. A great watch, must be seen.
