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 »
It is the first question. After so many films about same theme. At the first sigh, nothing. The clash between duty and love is familiar, the performances are good, the universe of soccer was used by the same genre. Special is the rhytm. The wise storytelling. The honesty giving a realistic portrait of a difficult, delicate, terrible, painful situation. And the feel to see something very personal. It is a film who has not status of pledge or manifesto but testimony. About pressure, career, fundamental options. A profound smart and moving film.
