by Marcus H. Rosenmüller Gala Premieres

When German Wehrmacht soldier Bernd Trautmann is taken prisoner in England towards the end of the Second World War, he cannot foresee that he is to become a British football legend. His life takes an abrupt turn when Jack Friar, the coach of provincial St. Helens, hears of the young man’s great talent during a POW football game. Bernd soon finds himself a free man, becomes a goalkeeper and falls in love with his coach’s daughter. When in 1949 Manchester City signs "Bert" as a professional goalkeeper, he is forced to leave St. Helens with a heavy heart. In Manchester, however, the hiring of a "Nazi" triggers a wave of indignation. Director Marcus H. Rosenmüller’s biopic TRAUTMANN is the portrait of a charismatic, former trench-trudging goalie legend.
