Marcel Gisler; 2018; Switzerland; 124 min.; in German with English subtitles; Northwest Premiere
Determined and skilled soccer player Mario (Max Hubacher) has been working for this moment his entire life—he’s being scouted by major European soccer teams. When he is paired with the equally talented Leon (Aaron Altaras) to increase their viability, a friendship begins that quickly includes something more: a stolen kiss, a long embrace. As their love becomes undeniable, rumors intensify, threatening their future. Winner of the Swiss Film Award for Best Actor, Hubacher gives a rich, emotional performance in the role of a man facing the loss of his lifelong dream or his once-in-a-lifetime love.
