Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait presents a different approach to the sports film, creating a real time portrait and a far reaching, in-depth film, focusing on one of the greatest soccer players of the century: Zinédine Zidane. During the entire 92 minutes of a Real Madrid vs. Villarreal match, seventeen super-35mm Scope format cameras were set around the Bernabeu Stadium focusing solely on Zidane, who agreed to become the centre of attention for this out-of-the-ordinary, full-length feature film. In this film, the viewers are plunged into all facets of the universe, the psychology and the body of an athlete in action - an incomparable and breathtaking experience.
