Storyline

Divorced father without custody Torben, a former pro soccer player, concentrates on his talented son David's juniors poorly performing team. When the coach suddenly accepts another position, Torben gets his change 'for the time being'. He becomes a substitute father for several of the boys. He's opposed by many parents, but finds love again with one player's single mother. Yet the greatest reward comes from David, in a twisted way. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Due to quarrels whether this should be a social realistic film or a family film and the last of the two options won, a key scene had to be cut; it featured Torben's lawyer, Jannik (played by Kim Sønderholm (Kim Sonderholm Andersen)) and Malene's lawyer Lisbeth (played by Maj-Britt Mathiesen) in a struggle over their clients divorce. This scene was deemed inappropriate for a family film, therefore cut, but it will be among the bonus material on the DVD when released in the fall of 2005. See more »

A nice 80 minutes
19 February 2006 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

The movie is a very nice family movie from beginning to end. Totally covers people's emotions and reality in a nice way that you can still feel that it is a movie. Torben is an old football player that found himself in a middle of nowhere after he lost his career. He (also) has family issues, like his son does not like him, his ex-wife thinks that he is a failure and he likes to drink cheap beer that buys from Aldi.

While he is trying to prove himself as a father he does everything that he should not do. BUT, a miracle happens and he becomes the director of his son's teenage football team, Hvidore.

----- Spoiler------ He works hard and changed his life to DO something in life and get back his son. It works he get his son back and starts a relationship with one of his son's friend's mom. Everything goes really well and they got the cup. ----- Spoiler------

FINAL COMMENTS: This movie gives you what it offers at the beginning. A nice 80 minutes that does not heard you much. But my problem was to see a part about "divorced family" AGAIN! Else than this, it might have a quite small but efficient market in Europe and rest of the world. After all it uses a very common language, football.

3 over 6 star…
