In the presence of Julien Faraut (director).

After the discovery of an archive of rushes entirely focused on John McEnroe playing at the Roland-Garros 1984 tournament, filmed to be used for tennis coaching purposes, Julien Faraut set himself to the task of making a film with this unique material. John McEnroe: In the Realm of Perfection gives its audience a hypnotic analysis of technique (by breaking down movements) and the champion’s personality. An in-depth look into both subtle ballet and boxing in search of what the eyes can’t see.
