PÖFF day 9

Uberto Pasolini
Italy, Sri Lanka, Germany 2008

A crazy story about men from the slum in Colombo, Sri Lanka. They are all dreaming of getting rid of their debts and poverty by emigrating to Germany, but gets a no on their visa application. They find an invitation for a handball tournament, and enter without even knowing what handball is. After arriving in Germany they all disappear. This is actually based on a true story, which makes it even greater. A feelgood movie, well filmed and well put together.
