Storyline

Moritz loves soccer-football, and the sport club SV Hulstorf that his father trained is his home. It made it hard when his parents separated and he and his somewhat cranky "no idea about football"-mother have to move to his fierce Grandpa Rudi. Rudi resides precisely in the same city as the arrogant and wealthy Mark, the star of the local club VfB Eichstädt and fights against Moritz right from the start. Moritz finds new friends in passionate street kickers, the brothers Mehmet and Enes, Niko, the somewhat strange Alex and of course Catrina, piquant-wise Mark's sister, who has a ballerina's career. Gradually Grandpa Rudi unbends himself. When the vicious kickers decide to get together at the old club "Sportfreunde Blau-Gelb", they find out that their new coach Rudi himself formerly played there and was an excellent footballer. Shortly before their first major tournament suddenly Moritz's father appears to take him away again to Hulstorf. But Moritz recognizes that the game is now more... Written by RSaVLSG

Entertaining well made film
4 February 2016 | by berenshillSee all my reviews

If this was an English language film it would probably get a big audience in the UK, and not just from football affectionados. I still think it would go down well with older children (despite sub-titles; the film is in German) because the action sequences are excellent and the events that take place are not difficult to understand. The plot is simple, simply done and the better for it. Cliché, perhaps but aren't all good, if not great, films basically simple?

The main character, Moritz, is played by Henry Horn from the German band Apollo 3: The two other members of the band have secondary roles as players in the team. Moritz is the only child of an affluent family. I have no issue with this as to me it only serves to contrast the emotional pain he endures when early in the film his parents split up and he goes to live with his mother and maternal grandfather in another town. None of the characters appear poor in the monetary sense, but they are all suffering in other ways. Misfits forming a team, yes it's been done before and no doubt will be done again.

How it all pans out is wonderfully simple, no computer written plot twists but clever none the less. The film delivers. Sometimes it's good to have egg and frites for supper.
