Becoming Zlatan

This exclusive material sheds new light on Ibrahimovic, his strict upbringing in Malmö's suburb and a troubled time when his career rapidly takes off at the moment he was sold from Malmö FF to Ajax for 9 million Euros in 2001 – the highest sum paid for a Scandinavian footballer at the time.
Storyline

Directed by acclaimed Swedish filmmakers Fredrik and Magnus Gertten (BIKES VS CARS,BANANAS!), BECOMING ZLATAN portrays the early years of Ibrahimovic, one ofEurope’s most popular and controversial players, known for his jaw-dropping goals and intensely guarded privacy. The film is based on interviews, which the Gertten brothers were able to shoot with the young player right from the start at his local Malmö club in 1999. They managed to capture his conflict-ridden years with Ajax in Amsterdam, leading up to his final 2005 breakthrough with Juventus in Italy, where he became intensely private.
