  A 21st century yawn

| | See all RJNeb2's reviews (702)

An interesting experiment (focussing entirely on just one player during a football match so as to understand his decision making, his skill, his athleticism, indeed his very presence) fails to pan out in practice. For a start, the match in question, a 2005 meet between Real Madrid and Villareal, is not an interesting one, which even resulted in Zidane being sent off. And then of course there is also the problem with the very expressionless quality of Zinedane Zidane, a man who gives precious little away, making it very hard for the audience to become engaged with him. It looks good and the score by Mogwai is hypnotic but this is one football match that would benefit from seeing it from a wider perspective.

I bought this dubiously...

But i'm very glad i did...

It's brilliant, a cross between sport & art, a complete different view of a sporting event!

Well worth buying!
