Zinedine Zidane's Movie at the Sundance Festival

Zin├ędine Zidane, the flawed Icon of Soccer, is the subject of a movie causing waves at the Sundance Festival. The film was shot with 17 cameras during the course of a 90-minute match and captures some incredible moments of the supremely talented sportsman. The movie has been directed by Turner Prize-winning artist and filmmaker Douglas Gordon and French artist Philippe Parreno. Some critics have hailed it as “…the greatest film about football ever made,” while others have just hated it.

It is perhaps all too fitting for the man, who created some of the most unforgettable displays of artistry and human triumph as well as raw animal savagery on the Soccer field. You can watch the trailer and clips from the official website of the movie – Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait.
