Overview

A battle for gay rights is fought on a small-time football field in this comedy drama from Germany. Ecki Maximilian Brückner is a talented soccer goalie who plays with a semi-pro team in a small German town, but he finds himself on the outs with his teammates when he fails to block a kick that costs the team the league championship. Ecki's relationship with the team goes from bad to worse when they discover he's gay, and they give him his walking papers. Furious, Ecki challenges his former team to a special match in which they'll face off against an all-gay team he'll assemble for the occasion. The homophobic team agrees to the match, but Ecki soon discovers finding ten capable gay footballers is no easy task, and making them into a competitive team is even harder. Making matters a bit easier for Ecki is his sister Susanne Lisa Maria Potthoff, who introduces him to one of her co-workers, Sven David Rott, a good-looking male nurse who can play soccer...and happens to find Ecki attractive. Männer Wie Wir aka Guys and Balls was written for the screen by Benedikt Gollhardt; it was his first theatrical film after establishing himself in television.
