Dir. Gil Mehnert, Germany, 2004, 88 min., digital. Starring: Arndt Schwering-Sohnrey, Eckhard Preuß, Mira Bartuschek.
Germany’s Rhineland in the 60’s - Hans Günter, a shy, unassuming young man lives a quiet life working for an auto body shop.
However, he comes alive when playing Tipp-Kick, a tabletop soccer game with little metal men for players.
At a local championship match, he meets the young press photographer Marion and ends up at her apartment that evening. Through a mysterious set of circumstances, Hans Günter’s favorite Tipp-Kick player, Number 10, falls into a mixture of Marion’s photo-developing chemicals and is transformed into a full-grown living soccer player...
Gil Mehnert’s debut feature film offers an endearing and humorous origin myth for the German Soccer legend Günter Netzer.
