Storyline

While visiting a PoW camp near Manchester at the end of WWII, Margaret Friar, the daughter of the manager of the local football team, notices young German soldier Bert Trautmann. Her father is so taken by Bert's prowess as a goal-keeper that he gets him out of the camp to play for his local team. Margaret and Bert's love blossoms despite local hostility and resentment of the German PoWs. In the meantime, Bert's heroics in goal are noticed by Manchester's City Football Club. Rather than going back to Germany like nearly all the other camp inmates, Bert marries Margaret and signs for Man City. His signing causes outrage to thousands of Man City fans, many of them Jewish.

Interesting but a bit slow in places
7 April 2019 | by malcolmgsw-01863See all my reviews

I had previously read the biography of Trautmann.Also I did see him play in a match at Highbury.He where he conceded 5 goals towards the end of his career. This is a very thoughtful film though rather slow in places particularly when dealing with his domestic life.I think that they managed the football scenes well albeit with the use of cain.
