Two moments of Jonas's life intertwine, each reflecting the other: in 1995, when he was a secretive teenager, and 18 years later, as an attractive and impulsive thirty-something looking for balance in his life.

Filmed with the cooperation of actual Swiss professional team Young Boys Bern. Filming locations include their Stade de Suisse stadium and training ground. The filmmakers stated that they felt extremely welcome and that there was no censorship from the team on how the issue of a possibly-gay soccer player played out. One board member stated that the film depicted a realistic reaction from the team. See more »
This film tells the story of two up and coming professional football players falling in love.
I loved this film because it tells a sweet romance, and also a very tough choice. The choice is very real because homophobia in professional sports is a well known phenomenon. Yet, it is a topic that is rarely touched upon in films. The actor playing Mario is a very good actor, because he displays emotions through his eyes, face and body. He convincingly tells his pain without the need for any words. "Mario" is an effective film that brings me to feel his joy and pain. I definitely recommend this film.
