The documentary is based on image archives, interviews with the young player, and more recent ones with the people that were around him in his early career: managers, colleagues, and football players.
Although 'Zlatanists' - as the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter calls them - do know well their idol, who published the book 'I, Zlatan in 2011, the movie unveils further details:
"The Gergtten brothers's documentary primarily focuses on the importance of the people around him, all those who believed in Zlatan's unique talent no matter what, even when his self-confidence shattered."
The film successfully encapsulates Zlatan's essence: "His inner light fascinates and makes him completely unpredictable, almost mythical, both inside and outside the stadium."
Tabloid Expressen estimates that the movie "may not be the best experience" and the staging sometimes seems pointless, but its emotional capacity lies in the story we are told. Particularly when staging the player's loneliness.
There’s no doubt that the documentary will be a fascinating look at a very complex man. The former Ajax, Barcelona, Juventus, Inter Milan, AC Milan and Malmo striker is never short of an opinion.
