Description

A new type of sports hero is born in this warm hearted, fast-paced comedy from the director/writer of The Sandman. After accidentally losing a large sum of money belonging to his employer on what should have been a sure bet, sad-sack high school German teacher Balz Naef needs to replace the funds pronto. Taking inspiration from the streaker that distracted his heavily favored soccer team, he starts recruiting and training exhibitionists for illegal sports betting. His enterprising hairdresser fixes odds for punters to wager on the length of time a naked runner can stay on the field and shares the proceeds with Naef.

Although streaking becomes a trendy new sport in Switzerland, the soccer club owners are furious and Police Commissioner Sandra Strebel takes on the case. This witty and humorous romp offers excellent scripting and direction and, er, revealing performances from a seasoned cast.
