A visionary coach, Arsene Wenger -- who for 22 seasons managed Arsenal football club in England's Premier League -- brought a thoughtfulness, a thoroughness, and a ruthlessness to top-flight soccer that still defines the game today. Arsene Wenger: Invincible documents his rise in soccer from his native France to Japan then on to England where he joined Arsenal in 1996 and masterminded the most successful period in their history. It also doesn't spare us his regrets and the lingering hurt inflicted on him by the end of his Arsenal tenure in 2018, when he faced criticism from some of the club's own fans.

This documentary takes its subtitle from Arsenal's legendary "invincible" 2003–2004 season, in which they won the Premier League title without losing one of their 38 league games. For all the advances of the modern game, it's a feat that hasn't yet been repeated. Along with the brutally honest assessment of Wenger's career by the man himself, it's as good an indicator as any of what makes him such a remarkable and -- unusually, for elite-level sport -- grounded figure. Arsene Wenger: Invincible doesn't have time to tell his whole story, but it does provide an enjoyable tour of the man and his achievements, in part remembered by the soccer stars he made and brought to a global audience. Recommended for soccer fans and those looking for a lesson in sporting history.
