Exactly half a year before the kick off of the world cup 2006 it says... Hmmm...

Guess this is THE opportunity for the fans of the German football to get into the right mood, experience the rich German culture and see why Germany is the country to be? :D

Vaucluse, Rose, Bremen, locallass, all your call people! :P

Bitte verzeihe mich, nur 'n bisschen Spassmacherei hier... :)

Might give it a try though, after all, it seems there is a tiny bit of German blood running through my veins as well... :o

Hey Eric, I have my eye on some of the films and will be going with some of my Goethe-Institut friends. If you want to arrange an outing, let me know. I'll see whether I can join. I can get us a discount by the way.

Of all the things to fight about.... You guys are a scream :lol:

Vaucluse, let's all go together okay? ;)

Okay Eric, Vaucluse, which film shall we catch? How about the one below? It sounds like something both men and women can enjoy.

Is anyone else also interested to go?

FRI 9 DEC 7PM

A Pass From The Back (PG)
Aus der Tiefe des Raumes

2004, 88 mins, in German with English subtitles

Director Gil Mehmert

Cast Arndt Schwering-Sohnrey, Mira Bartuschek, Karl Korte, Eckhard Preuß, Christoph Maria Herbst

Awards Bavarian Film Awards 2005: VGF Award

In the lovely provincial atmosphere of a Rhineland small town during the
60s, we witness an incredible, unbelievable story: Hans-Günter is a reserved young man in his 20s, working in a small auto body paint shop. Although pretty skillful in making old cars shine like new, his grumpy boss usually harasses him. But all his frustration and shyness are compensated and blown away when he tends to his remarkable hobby: he plays Tipp-Kick.

Hans-Günter is a high-level player in this seemingly bizarre tabletop soccer game. And he has developed an intense relationship to his favorite figurine, Number 10. One day during an important Tipp-Kick competition, Hans-Günter meets the young press photographer Marion and his shy life is completely thrown out of joint. While he and Marion enjoy a tender romantic night together, a mysterious “birth”
