Storyline

The scene is the FC Basel stadium, the actors are the team supporters and the star is Tobias Haufner, their cheerleader. His task is to make them shout, and chant in unison in order to electrify the players and lead them to the victory. When all the fans sing together, they feel high, they feel as one, involving the spectators before their screens. Isn't that wonderful? But isn't this exhilaration a temporary loss of awareness as well, maybe the fist step to fascism? Written by Guy Bellinger

Interesting and Artistic
15 August 2006 | by (Kansas City, United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at a bar in San Francisco. It was part of a short film festival.

This film contains no narration or interview and is only 9 minutes long. However it is a fascinating portrait of a cheerleader at a soccer game. To an American audience, the German screams coupled with the almost fascist salutes and chants must have seemed terrifying. What's more is that often I found myself involved in the crowd, wanting to know the songs they sang and the chants they had.

What starts off as a terrifying portrait slowly moves into the comfort of community (or some might say conformism). A beautiful film, nonetheless.
