Hands in the pocket, football in mind

It is full spring in Berlin, Sitting on a bench in Treptower Park, I’m thinking about the best plot for a multinational episode film. Trying to fit the different cultural perspectives of the team into a subject my thoughts drive off to lighter topics. The news I was listening in the morning. The buzz everybody is making about the forthcoming championship. And there we go. Isn’t football such an universal subject that it moves people in a way, otherwise only elementary needs do? How much will audiences reactions differ around the world? What about making the question, how universaly such a match truly is, the core of the story?
