Becoming Zlatan - F and M Gertten, 2016

With a documentary focusing on a character this inexplicably irresistible, it seems hard to truly foul up. 

The film is better than you'd have thought, seeing how it was made by unused film shot for another documentary, centered on the Malmö team he used to play for in Sweden. 
It is the coming-of-age story of a talented, charismatic and enigmatic football-player. 
Way too enigmatic for the good of the film, actually. It left me with rather more questions than I had before watching it.
