    “Body building”: to build your own body. While the concept has been around for more than a century, 40 years ago we used to laugh at Conan and Rambo flexing their pectorals.

    A bodybuilder's dream is to become almost like a cyborg: to augment their body, to submit to the machine and to become one themselves.

    No wonder then that the gyms start looking like factories: where workers slave away in an assembly line where they have become their own product. Bodybuilding originates from the industrial era and heralds the post-human age.

    "Zidane's Dream Team" is the story of a small group of friends, very dear to one of the world's greatest footballers.

    The film aims to show that despite a shared desire to become professional footballers, the different lives these eleven friends have led have meant they have not all shared such a happy fate. But fate is not due to luck alone - their different hopes and motivations at different times in their lives must also be taken into consideration, as well as the chance factor.

    Be that as it may, the film shows that despite personal circumstances, fate and some very different career paths, the passion for football and friendship have lasted intact.
