Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait Film Poster


An entire football match filmed from the perspective of soccer hero Zinedine Zidane. High-art comes to the pitch for this ambitious project hailed widely as a groundbreaking new direction in sports films. At a 2005 match between Villareal versus Real Madrid, a camera was placed on the star player that gives a Zidane's-eye view of the entire game. Using effects, slo-mo, and a soundtrack by Scottish band Mogwai, the directors create the opportunity of stepping into Zidane's boots for 90 minutes.
