the way that leads to glory...
4 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

When you watch this special documentary, you can't help thinking about this: Stéphane Meunier took a risk. Filming the French team during all the World Cup that took place in France in 1998 was a quite hard bet. If the French team had lost, Meunier' enterprise would have tumbled down. But, he knew how to take the challenge up and his documentary turns out to be fascinating. Meunier broached the football players in different ways. During the games and the relaxation moments, his camera makes itself discreet and retiring. However, when it comes to define the players' feelings concerning a match or what he thinks about the team, the camera becomes investigative. On the other hand, the documentary is full of qualities. For example, Meunier chose wisely the music and it articulates perfectly with the moments that the players but also the spectators must feel during the games (Massive Attack during tense moments, Madonna when happiness shine in the players when one of them scores a goal). Moreover, Meunier drew a convincing description of the coach, Aimé Jacquet, steady and satisfying when it's necessary. As far as the players are concerned, he makes them both friendly and endearing.

At the end, no matter if you're fond of football or you aren't, this documentary is a real success.
