What a great movie...
Warning: The following text may is written in horrible English. Sorry. The movie is about a talented food-ballplayer, who is thrown out of the 2nd Team cause he wounded the Starplayer of the first team in a training-game. Cause the coach is also the boss of the factory he's working in, he gets fired soon. More problems are coming. Then police sent him innocently in prison. He raped a woman, they say. Then, when his old team needs a player they take him out of prison. He runs away to find out the reasons for all this. After understanding everything he plays THEIR game, just waiting for his revenge... To be honest till now I have seen only 4 movies by Patrick Dewaere... But again I have to say that he is my favorite french actor and this movie is not only critically it's also extremely funny. I hope i will see more movies of him, because sadly ,in general German television prefers to show superficial movies. So WATCH IT. If you have already seen it.. DO IT AGAIN..
