the miracle of bern/ghetto kids

Summer, 1954. The Soviet Union is sending its prisoners of war home. Among them is the father of quiet, football-loving, 11-year-old Matthias, who lives with his mother, sister and brother in a West-German mining town.

The boy has long found a surrogate father in the local football player Helmut Rahn, who has 'adopted' Matthias as his mascot. The return of the boy's father Richard casts a shadow over the once-happy family: broken by his years in captivity, Richard has trouble adapting to life in postwar Germany and alienates his family through his severity.

For Richard, football is pointless, and so is the World Cup that's about to be held in Bern, Switzerland. Through his passion for the game and his fighting spirit, Matthias rekindles a love of life in his dad's heart. And so, as the final match of the World Cup begins, a little miracle of love and generosity leaps across borders to help another miracle occur - the victory of Helmut Rahn and the German team, the miracle of Bern.

Director and ex-football player Sönke Wortmann brilliantly succeeds in setting an intensely emotional and touching family drama against the exhilarating, authentic background of West Germany's miraculous World Cup victory in 1954.

I'd like to get The Miracle of Bern, and have looked for it before.  I'd never heard of that other one, though.  Thanks once again, aaaa!  :biggrin:

Love,
Sir J

Finally Ghettokids has been released on DVD R2 as well. The DVD has English subtitles and includes an 86-minutes doumentary, Planet Hasenbergl, about daily life in this part of Munich. Hasenbergl is sometimes called 'the Bronx of Munich'. Some of the kids in this documentary also starred in Ghettokids.

DVD can be ordered through (You need to Login or Register to view media files and links)
