Deutscher Filmpreis Award Winners

In the working-class Ruhr region of West Germany, the Lubanski family eagerly awaits husband and father Richard to be released from the Soviet POW camp. During his absence, mother Christa and daughter Ingrid have started up their own business, while son Matthias has developed an interest in soccer. He idolizes local player Helmut Rahn, but his father doesn't approve of it. Meanwhile, sports journalist Paul Ackermann heads to Switzerland to cover the World Cup events. The finale at the climactic soccer game was re-created with professional players from the German Football Liga along with a 3-D stadium and CGI crowd. (118 min)

This film will be shown with English subtitles. Come see this award-winning film yourself!
