Critic Reviews for The Keeper (Trautmann)
Maybe the actual Trautmann was haunted by memories of a boy with a soccer ball he saw killed. But it's likely that reality was less tidy.
For the most part, the film embraces its contradictions. As a parable about forgiveness, it's a fine example. As a portrait of the real Trautmann, some questions remain, hanging in the air like a ball on the way to the far corner of the net.
The extraordinary true story of Burt Trautmann...gets a warm if corny retelling in Marcus H Rosenmüller's drama. The on-field action is decently handled, as is Trautmann's initial ostracism for his medal-winning deeds in the Second World War.
The Keeper's insistence on seeing the good in all its characters and giving them the happy ending they were probably denied in real life has its charms.
A number of omissions skew the full story, but a charming and often enlightening watch all the same.
