Trivia

This is born out of a love that co-director Philippe Parreno had as a child when he was watching football matches on TV. He would concentrate on his favorite player and assiduously try to watch as much of him - and just him - throughout the match. See more »

A pale remake of an unheralded underground curio
31 August 2006 | by Errol10See all my reviews

This film is little more than an overblown remake of Costard's 1971 curio "Football As Never Before", with Zidane taking the place of George Best. It has a few arresting moments and is interesting on a technical and technological level, but it lacks the charm of the earlier film and the filmmakers are arrogant to presume that this kind of cinema can do justice to a great footballer. It will add nothing to the understanding of those who don't watch football regularly and will bitterly disappoint those who do. The presentation of football (and all sport) requires space, context and perspective, this glorified art installation has none of these essential ingredients.
