Football mad

Sunday, 18 October 2020

Director Manuele Deho from Munich is not a football fan. Nevertheless, he has made a football film: "Football-Mad". He took a year to observe how the coach and the players try to form a team. But the players are real individualists and mentally ill people. The director understood how to gain the trust of his protagonists through his restrained camera work. In this way the film manages to tell an impressive story about life between normality and illness and the power of playing football together and to touch the audience in the small venue of the Babylon.
