The decisive years of Swedish footballer Zlatan Ibrahimovic, told through rare archival footage where a young Zlatan speaks openly about his life and challenges.

The film closely follows Zlatan, from his debut in Malmö FF in 1999, through his conflictual years with Ajax Amsterdam, up to the final breakthrough with Juventus in 2005. BECOMING ZLATAN is a coming-of-age film, depicting the complicated journey of this young, talented and troubled player who finally becomes a superstar in the international football world.

It’s a story about a young talent living under constant pressure. From the teammates in Malmö who think he’s too egoistic and only plays for himself. From the tough managers of Ajax who send him to the bench, where he loses his self-confidence. From his father who tells the 18 year old Zlatan: You’re nothing. You’re nothing special until you’ve succeeded internationally. Throughout his journey, Zlatan stays true to himself. When he finally succeeds in Italy he also closes the doors to his personal life. Football superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic is an enigma, but in this story from his breakthrough years, he – for a moment – gives some glimpses into who he really is. WATCH TRAILER.

3 reviews for Becoming Zlatan (DVD)

  1. “Becoming Zlatan could’ve easily been a movie about crucial goals, games and formations. But it’s not. It’s instead a both important and touching movie about class and ethnicity. It also become like a dark response to neo liberalism’s hallelujah towards the successful solitaire. There’s always a price to pay.” (Aftonbladet Kultur, 2016.02.14)

  2. “We at Cosmo can’t say more than that this is worth seeing (you don’t need to be a football fan to understand the movie!), and that goosebumps, tears and laughter is promised! We get to see everything from a guy talking about love, to how he’s mistreated by media and other sport colleagues during the young years. It’s hard not to be swept away by his life, his story and the journey to where he is today.
    If you should see one movie only this year, it’s definitely this one. GOD BLESS IBRA, that’s the only thing we can say.” (Cosmopolitan, 2016.02.10)

  3. “This is the movie about how the super talented youngster Zlatan becomes the superstar Zlatan. It is also a movie about love. And it’s divinely beautiful as such. In my opinion the best that’s been made about swedish football’s biggest.
    The thing that fascinates me the most is how deeply we get to know Zlatan. And this time it’s not a sanitized truth. It’s not his own truth through a book or an app. The question is if he would like the movie himself. Or if he would think that the viewer gets too close. I would guess the later.” (Expressen, 2016.02.09)
