Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 »

4 stories in 4 European countries around 1 soccer match
16 April 2005 | by re_barthSee all my reviews

One day in Europe shows stories set in four European countries. All of them involve thievery in some way or the other. The protagonists are strangers in the respective country. For none of them their stay turns out as planned. With sympathetic mockery a small share of each of the different cultures is highlighted. The film uses characteristics typically attributed to the countries and weaves numerous funny events around, without becoming stereotypical. Especially the police scenes are fun to watch.

Straight forward directing and a good ensemble cast. The script cleverly uses the potential provided by language barriers. All in all the movie is quite entertaining and shows why Europe really is to enjoy.
