Soccer Has Never Looked So Good


in Other

During a 2005 soccer match between Real Madrid and Villareal, 17 top of the line cameras were focused on cranial combatant extraordinaire Zinedine Zidane for the entirety of the game. The result is a soccer match with a beautiful, cinematic feel that runs in real time for 93 minutes. Technically speaking, the video is a marvel. It looks like something shot for the climactic game at the end of some inspirational sports movie, except the stadium is actually full and it wasn’t shot during half time. You can’t really tell what is going on in the game itself, because Zidane is the focus the whole time, but it gives it a much more artistic feel as opposed to a regular broadcast of the game. I hear the YouTube video doesn’t do it much justice, but this will have to hold you over until the US release or if you have some way to play PAL DVDs.
