A unique documentary which focuses on the international recognised football-player Michael Laudrup on top of his career in the mid 90's, as a player on one of the best club teams at the time: FC Barcelona. In this film, directed by Danish documentary director Jørgen Leth (who directed THE FIVE OBSTRUCTIONS together with Lars von Trier), Michael Laudrup talks about football - an art which he himself is one of the finest representatives of. The film is shot primarily in Barcelona, while the club is heading for its third Spanish championship in a row, and also contains an interview with coach Johan Cruyff and lots of footage from matches from Laudrup's brilliant career.
