The Other Fields

The Other Fields

Every year in summer, when the major football teams fly their players to training camps in sunny locations, some two dozen men meet on an simple football ground in Duisburg. They are professional footballers - and they are unemployed. The spotlight shines on stars and arenas, but here are substantial things at stake. The workers union holds the camp for those in need and reminds those young men that their biography will be a split one. The career lasts only a few years - and then life starts. Talent, will, luck - it seems to be not enough for the very top, though they still hope for the breakthrough. And even if their football dream becomes reality, it turns out to be an employment relationship and often only part time labor. THE OTHER FIELDS accompanies several young men at the crucial turning point in their lives. They try to maintain their dreams in a system that deploys failure as the normal case.

This film gave me everything I love in movie, a powerful story and more than enough edge-of-your-seat action sequences.

Simon Quack is fantastic. Real suspense and intriguing believable story! The movie forced us to use our minds and to immerse ourselves.

Enjoyed it very much. Don't write it off because of the bad reviews. Give it 20-30 minutes and decide for yourself.
