{     Zidane - Un Portrait du 21e Siècle     } all know how the Italy-France World Cup final went, what happened and that Zidane retired right after. Two months have passed from those sore moments and peace has somewhat settled in: France won over Italy with a whopping 3-1 in their first match after the world cup and even if the football world order will never be the same again, this somewhat re-establish equilibrium. So, if you liked Zidane before, don't feel terrible in liking him today: he definitely is a first class player with a great career (or a wanker, especially if you are Italian, but let's forget about that for a minute). Anyhow, you would be in a pretty well nourished pool of fans uncluding Glaswegian rock geniuses Mogwai, who have decided to engrave their love for Zinedine Zidane for perpetual memory. They did it in a rock-and-admiration infused soundtrack, made to go along the film/documentary Zidane - Un Portrait du 21e Siècle, by Philippe Parreno. The documentary promises to be something never seen before in the football world: 17 cameras using different formats (from 35 mm to high definition) shooting at the same time Zidane moving lightly on the grass of the stadium from different angles, Mogwai playing the background for the entire lenght of the film, a prized Hollywood Crew and a red carpet Cannes Film Festival presentation are all elements of the artistic effort put into this rare example of elegant football documentary. The soundtrack by Mogwai is alone worth buying this dvd, but the dynamic editing and "mixed media" are definitely interesting even for football non-lovers and worth of the stature of a player like Zidane.
