Deutschland. Ein Sommermarchen- DVD release
13 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hello, I am a huge Michael Ballack fan and of course, a fan of the German soccer team. It broke my heart to watch them lose against Italy and thus, lose their chance to win the World Cup.

I live in the US, and so haven't yet watched the German documentary: 'Deutschland. Ein Sommermarchen' and it's also very difficult to find any information related to this film.

Does anyone have an idea about when the DVD release of this documentary is slated for? Has a release date been announced yet? I hope that it would not be too far into the future. I would appreciate any web-links or information. Thank you.
