Eight years in the making from 2003 to 2011, the documentary follows Broich through the trials and tribulations of his football career from the German Fußball-Bundesliga to Australian club Brisbane Roar. The film's title is a reference to Broich's idol Zinedine Zidane, nicknamed "Zizou".
Debuting to positive reviews at the Berlin International Film Festival, the independently produced film was a success in Germany, winning awards and selling out cinemas across the nation. Tom Meets Zizou was released on DVD in Germany and Australia.
