Just saw this documentary on TV. Like the "male-version" last year, "Deutschland. Ein Sommermärchen", this movie looks behind the curtains of a German football team; this time the female national team.
While the producers of the "Sommermärchen" had authorization problems to follow the team to certain places, the success of the movie made it possible to do this one much smoother and you know it!
Because of this Britta Becker (the director) presents us a "better version" of "Sommermärchen".
It's nice to see a "deeper look" into the problems of female football. Like that most of them have jobs next to football and sometimes have problems getting time for training or such "little" events. Also they talk much about their football-life and how much problems they had to get acknowledged, even as little kids.
Interrupted by their games (and goals) the movie works it way up to the final match. There German "static" and "focus" meets Brazilian "fire" and "emotion". That shall show the viewer that, even if many people only smile at female football, the difference between male and female football is not that big.
The only problem in this movie is, that at no time they show the names of the players (and other peoples) while speaking. And sorry, I didn't even know all the male players, yet alone now the female players!
