Frankreich, wir kommen!

France, Here We Are!

Michael Glawogger
This drama in three acts depicts the journey of the Austrian national soccer team to the World Cup finals in France as seen through the eyes of a journalist, a bank examiner and his mother, a pensioner, an alcoholic, a large family, a coach for a child's team and a blind man. Against the backdrop of the games against Cameroon, Chile and Italy, this film tells a story of faith, love and hope in front of the television screen - the screen which shows some of the world's inhabitants sitting before it, mesmerized.
