Guys and Balls

After getting kicked off his local soccer team when he confesses that he's homosexual, a young German goalie accepts a challenge to assemble an all-gay outfit and play a match in four weeks. Fleeing his provincial hamlet, he moves in with his sister in nearby Dortmund, where he recruits a rogues' gallery of players, including a trio of cuddly bikers into S and M, a young Turk in love with soccer superstar David Beckham, and a closeted barfly. Following the same general blueprint as The Bad News Bears or The Longest Yard, this engaging, well-paced German film directed by Sherry Horman includes a vibrantly funny script by Benedikt Gollhardt. With Maximilian Bruckner and Lisa Potthoff. In German with subtitles. 106 min.
