Rich and inventive!
27 April 2006 | by MasterKiller666See all my reviews

This movie is so rich in brilliant ideas and gags, it makes you forget the few weaknesses in the story and the characters.

These minor weak spots are the only reason why the leading actors cannot excel in their usual way. Esp. the role of Christian Ulmen is just to 'normal' for him to show his true talent. Nora Tschirner is well casted, but she also didn't have the opportunity to show what she's capable of (btw, she is very beautiful and charming, hope to see more of her in the future!).

Fortunately, an old football saying applies to this movie: the team is the star. Some of the supporting actors do a very good job in portraying the different types of soccer fanatics resp. their wives.

If you're into football/soccer yourself or you know somebody who is, you're destined to recognise yourself/this person somewhere in the movie.

Definitely worth seeing!
