For me as a german the world cup 2006 wasn't really a fairytale. So I can't really see why this movie exists. But its well executed and perfectly watchable when you're german.

German filmmaker and football fan Sönke Wortmann followed the German football national team on its way to the 2006 FIFA World Cup.

The film covers both the preparation and the actual tournament. In a very emotional way Wortmann closely captures intimate moments from players, coaches and other contributors and perfectly shows the ever-present passion and euphoria within the country back then.

It follows the players in their hotel rooms, to tactical meetings and even in the locker rooms and you get an idea what happens in their minds.

I'm Austrian and therefore German is the natural rival and especially when it comes to football I don't have much sympathy for them but even I have to admire their professionalism. You get such a close look at them - you can't help but starting to like them. That's quite an achievement.

Natürlich spricht der Film nur Fans der deutschen Nationalmanschaft an. Als solcher kennt man den Verlauf der WM und damit auch die Rahmenhandlung. Der einzige dramatische Wendepunkt ist somit bekannt und da der Film eventuell bestehende Konflikte glättet, um den DFBverantwortlichen zu gefallen, sind ihm fast alle Mittel genommen, um Interesse zu wecken. Die private Einsicht in den Kreis der Spieler scheint vielversprechend zu sein, doch leider gibt es nur manche Momente in denen man wirklich von den Reaktionen der Spieler überrascht wird. Wenn etwa Ballack seine herrische Art bei einer Diskussion offenbart oder Lehmann eine provokante Frage an die Kanzlerin richtet.

Interesting for an insight into the German mentality (the part where they talk about the living conditions affecting the personality of the Costa Ricans before their first game is perfect) if nothing else. The players are pretty anonymous.

I don't know what to say... I watched a documentary in Germany without a subtitle but it still possessed the power to blow me away! All my best memories from WC2006 became so vivid in front of my eyes that my heart ached... A must-see for any Mannschaft fan!

Amazing movie, well documented. Shows the German heart for football, and how even though they may have lost out for the fight for gold, Germany still stands behind their team no matter what.

Watching this movie remembers me of the World Cup 2006 here in Germany. And it's very interesting (and often funny as well ;)) to see what happened backstage. Truly a summerdream.
