Weekend Warriors

Deutschland 2005/2006 Dokumentarfilm

Summary

American football is not only played in the US but also in Germany. Four young amateur football players from Berlin are the main focus of the film. For them this all-American sport is more than just a hobby and more than just a game. Football gives them guidance in life and a boost to their masculine ego. Weekend Warriors portraits Herbie – the mama′s boy, Tilo – the show-off, Johnny – the young and confused, and Thomas – the thinker, during one football season with the "Berlin Adler". The film explores in a humorous way how personal goals, moral values and rituals from the football fields are applied to real life and vice versa.

A sports film at its finest, capturing what it means for a man to be a winner - not only in sports but also in life.
