Germany's answer to The Full Monty - absolutely gorgeous!
3 December 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Having just seen Sumo Bruno at London's German Film Festival, the first thing that strikes me is what a crying shame it is that distributors are not picking this gem up because they think audiences won't want to see a film about a "fat person." This is Germany's answer to The Full Monty - a delightful, funny, heart-warming, life-affirming film that avoids mawkishness or sentimentality, but proves deeply humane. Superbly acted, great sound, interesting photography - I can't think of any downfalls. As for the "fat person" worry... perhaps those distributors should get out of their glass and marble enclaves a little more often... this works because it's about REAL people finding their dreams...
