German title: Liverpool-Torwart, Der
Norway, 2010

Director: Andresen, Arild
Production company: 4 1/2 Fiksjon AS
Age recommendation: 8 years and up

The Liverpool Goalie is a warm comedy, in which both girls and boys play football, worship their idols, and are frustrated by complicated friendships, young love, anxious mothers and overambitious football coaches. At the heart of the events, we find twelve year old Jo. Jo tries to avoid both potential girfriends, mothers and football coaches, as he is hunting desperately for a rare football card which he believes will solve all his problems.

Jo has a smart head, but a weak body. Even so, he gets by relatively well - until Mari throws him a glance, and he acquires The Liverpool Goalie.
