Some Deportivo La Coruna fans are shown holding Turkish flags during the movie. This is not because they are playing against a Turkish team and they want to look friendly, Deportivo fans are called "Los Turcos" by their fiercest rivals, Celta de Vigo fans. Celta fans initiated this nickname to humiliate the Deportivo fans thinking that the "Turks" are lower people, but instead the Deportivo fans liked this name even decided to call themselves "Los Turcos", most probably because the Turks have a notorious history over Europe. Because of this, Deportivo La Coruna is a very popular team among Turkish people. See more »
During the Moscow part, everyone in the police station is watching the final game, but the scenes briefly shown on the TV (which are supposedly from the actual final game) are actually from the Galatasaray-Deportivo Champions Leauge 2nd Group, Group B match from 14.02.2001. This game ended 1-0 in favor of Galatasaray, thanks to an 8th minute goal from Suat Kaya. See more »

I watched the movie in Istanbul Film Festival with the presence of the director Hannes Stöhr - I was sitting just three rows up from where Mr. Stöhr sat. Anyway, I liked the movie's sense of internationality, its funny but balanced approach towards national differences, its respect to the nationalistic views and its notion of Europe not being a continent just constituted by EU-countries.
The humor of the movie is built upon international differences and similarities. It bears some bias on nations but it doesn't emphasize them, it just plays with them to create humor. At the end, I liked the movie and I liked Mr. Stöhr after listening to his conference about his movie. Not an important movie after all, but helps enjoying being European with a cute humor.
