From war heroes to war criminals to sports heroes. It was only when Nazi insults, then as a football God cheered. This is at least in Parts of the true story told in the melodrama "Trautmann". Bernhard Carl "Bert" Trautmann grew up in Bremen, reports a 17-Year-old volunteer to the weapons, is awarded as a paratrooper in the Second world war, with the Iron cross, as a prisoner of war to Lancashire and rises as a goalkeeper at Manchester City legend.
David Kross embodied in this titanium as sympathetic, of the detention surprisingly little pop-up man, of the keeps in the prison camp's penalty cancelled out, and with the cigarette pay. His Talent falls to a grocer (John Henshaw), the removed him from the camp, and as "Bert from Bradford" in the Amateur team, which he coached. Trautmann saves the Team with spectacular parades in front of the descent. Not only are the Scouts of the professional clubs, but also the daughter of the Trainer (Freya Mavor) are interested in him. Although she calls him "Hitler" and "dirty German", and begins a Liaison. "Trautmann" is a fairy tale, a Reconciliation.
more Important than what happens on the pitch, is a football movie, what his characters experience after the final whistle. The lesson has been learned, directed by Marcus H. rosenmüller from the "miracle of Bern", Sönke Wortmann's father-and-son story against the backdrop of the world Cup final of 1954. In Bern, Trautmann was not because he was in Germany as traitors to the Fatherland and of national coach Sepp Herberger ignored. This perspective is not, will be presented, such as "Trust the leaf" from enemy to friend mutated, an exemplary integration performance. Often the protagonists in the Outdoors, in the scenic field, meadow, coastal landscapes, such as the "Inspector Barbaby"-TV thrillers. Trautmann holds the balls with their bare hands, in the 1956 Cup final at London's Wembley stadium. The goalkeeper suffered in the 75. Minute, a cervical vertebrae fracture, plays anyway, and save the victory. His biggest Triumph.
Worse than the Kitsch of the geschichtsk suffered. In flashbacks to an apparently freely invented war is shown again and again episode, in which a Polish (or Jewish?) Boy dies because he does not want to give up his football. Trautmann has looks, he has a shot? When his son is killed in a traffic accident, the goalkeeper for a fair punishment. A symbolic guilt complex, but completely implausible.More about
