I can understand why some people would find this film rubbish, but it really is a fantastic piece of cinema if you just give it a chance.
If what you were expecting was just a montage of Zidane's finest moment this is not what you are looking for. This show's Zidane warts and all
the genius, the aggression, the skill - everything that made him the
finest player of our generation.
The title of the film is so apt - it really is a portrait of football's finest "artist" in recent times. It is a little self indulgent, but the cinematography is fantastic and the soundtrack (music and sound) is incredible.
If you have any appreciation for football, Zidane, or even just artistic cinema I'd thoroughly recommend this movie.
