Tom Meets Zizou (German title: Tom Meets Zizou – Kein Sommermärchen [Not a Summer's Tale]) is a documentary film by director Aljoscha Pause, based on the life and career of German football player Thomas Broich.[1]


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.[2][3] 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.[4] Tom Meets Zizou was released on DVD in Germany and Australia.[5]
