A light, but immensely satisfying film
2 September 2000 | by (Halifax, Nova Scotia) – See all my reviews

Just saw the premiere at the Montreal Film Festival and was greatly entertained. Sumo Bruno is a German film of a 400+ lbs man who finds meaning and self-esteem in a quest to win a sumo-wrestling championship. The story is, in many ways, very conventional with respect to various relationships and plot developments, however the story and characters transcend the Rocky cliches.
