Storyline

For Hans Pollack and his friends, soccer is the most wonderful hobby in the world. They all worship the world-class forward Pablo Dios. Their adoration goes so far that it makes them forget the birth of a daughter, gamble away a house, "accidentally" kidnap the rich and arrogant football star, and tear apart the family. However, Pablo and Hans gradually develop an unlikely friendship... Written by L.H. Wong <lhw@sfs.org.sg>

If you've already seen American Beauty and The 6th Sense, it's worth paying for this film.
25 January 2000 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

I am still somewhat surprised about this film. When I saw the title at the beginning of a sneak preview, I feared that the result would be a fan-film for the German club Schalke 04. But it was a film about the *fans* which made the film worth seeing (but not necessarily very good). I especially liked that soccer was even criticized sometimes in the film.

The plot is bloody simple, the characters quite one-sided and boring, but still it is a nice satire on the fans, becoming more an more extreme in their actions. The setting (Gelsenkirchen) is very realistic and typical for both the area and many people who live there.

You don't go twice into this film (except if you are a HUGE fan of Uwe Ochsenknecht), but you don't waste your money if you've already seen Jeanne d'Arc, The Sixth Sense and American Beauty.
