Two promising football players (soccer, if you’re reading this in the US) share an apartment, provided by the club. They get along really well. In fact, they get along so well, they end up falling in love and having a sexual relationship. But what about their future now?

LGBT movies seem to get a quicker worldwide release thanĀ regularĀ movies. The only Swiss movie in the local library is this one. That says a lot. That said, it’s not a bad movie. It’s a typical coming out as gay in a homophobe environment movie, but it’s also a coming of age young adolescent movie. And it gives you a bit of a look into the recruiting of promising football players as well and how being a great player isn’t the only thing one needs to succeed.

Best scene: The photo shoot with the fake girlfriend
