Karsten apparently has it settled. However, in this provincial German town, a moment of weakness turns to disaster, disappointment soon fuels anger, justice hides behind hypocrisy, and evil gradually unfolds.
Herbert lived well from his giant body for years, as a boxer since the GDR, nicknamed 'Pride of Leipzig', and now as bouncer and debt collector, while training promising boxers, especially gentle Eddy, who got a shot at the title in a much lower weight class. After ignoring symptoms for months, collapsing Herbert is diagnosed with the incurable muscular disease ALS, and is bluntly dropped from all his jobs and the gym. Seeking to set straight what went wrong is his life, he mends as good as he can with his daughter -neglected since age six- and deals with girl friend Marlene. Herbert is lucky with great home assistant Steffen, even gets to cheer protege Eddy to his title as last sportive achievement.Written by
This is an excellent movie. Especially Peter Kurth's acting is simply sensational! Decent, i believe, the performances of the others. But, what we have here is a complete universe. And the protagonist is that universe. Without reaching the limits of melodrama, Kurth Peter manages to perform up to the ultimate detail all stages of his terrifying paralysis. This is not easy and we have not seen it many times with such success. The Director adequately unfolds the escalating intensity and the drama and you simply cannot remain unaffected. A movie uneasy but worth to watch!
