I think that this piece is moving art, capturing Zidane on a normal night in Madrid. I think that it is strangely compelling as it could have been so much better. I understand that the logistics would probably mean they couldn't have followed him for a number of games - but that would make it so much better. His thoughts during the game are profound and Zidane as an artistic subject is perfect as he has alot of natural charisma. I don't think the average fan would enjoy this, I feel that as well as a passion for football you have to appreciate art and cinematic photography. A small note - notice how he strangely has the habit of dragging his foot whilst he is walking around.
A great idea but terrible to watch. This film is not what I thought it would be. I love football and appreciate the game and all its beauty. You will see Zidane running and walking around the pitch doing mostly nothing but looking around. I kept at it in the hope that when he did have the ball you would be able to capture his play and body movement etc. Instead you are left frustrated that his play isnt captured as well as could and should be. I can see how a minority of people who appreciate art will like this. However for the average joe or even if you are like me and like things a little abstract, this documentary is just a little too much to take. the soundtrack and words included are also dilute and poor. believe me i really wanted to like this film but couldnt. A red card to philippe parreno :-/
