Zizou : The Movie

While surfing the web tonight I stumbled across some information saying that there has been a film made of French football god Zinedine Zidane. What I read next is a total coincidence. The film follows Zizou over the course of 90 minutes of the game between the Frenchman Real Madrid side against their Spanish counterparts Villareal. It has already been premiered at the Cannes Film Festival

Ok so I'm immediately interested in this..... But wait...... What's this?........

The film soundtrck is provided by none other than Mogwai, the tremendous Glasgow band I mentioned earlier.

This is a match made in heaven, the greatest footballer of his generation soundtracked by the greatest band of their generation.

The Guardian has this to say "Douglas Gordon's gloriously funny and audacious 'zidane: a 21st-century portrait', following the footballer over 90 minutes, was the most purely enjoyable event at the festival. zidane is the best sports movie I have ever seen and a wonderful film that brilliantly marries up a daringly experimental style with a popular subject. It had bespectacled cineastes crying out: "zizou!" I can't wait to see it again when it comes out here".

There is a suggestion that the mighty 'Gwai will release the music as an Ep in the future. But in the meantime check the link below for a trailer of the great man's film.
