Questions about the match
Just saw this last night. Honestly, I was a little disappointed, in that I was expecting a soccer movie with an artsy quality, but instead got an art film that was set in a soccer match. But I suppose that's an issue of my own expectations. Still, there's a whole lot of footage of Zidane walking around, watching the action from afar, and spitting (frequently!).
That said, Zidane has an amazing presence. His intensity is palpable and intimidating, even for the viewers of this film-- separated from these events by thousands of miles and several years (one of the points, I suppose, of the film). I can't imagine what it was like to go head-to-head with him! My favorite part, though, is when his icy glare is briefly broken with a warm, playful conversation with Roberto Carlos.
The music was beautiful-- spacious and melodic, like a well-played soccer match.
So...does anyone know any details about this match? What was the final score? What caused him to blow up at the end of the film-- was it the officiating or another player? Any thoughts on what he and Roberto Carlos were talking about?
