PETER LUISI
Switzerland, 2017
93 minutes, Color
Official website

In Person: Star Doro Müggler

A new type of sports hero is born in this warm-hearted and fast-paced comedy from the writer/director of The Sandman (FFDC 2012) and Unlikely Heroes (FFDC 2015).

After losing a large sum of his employer's money on what should have been a sure bet, sad-sack high school teacher Balz Näf needs to replace the funds pronto. Taking inspiration from the streaker who distracted his heavily favored soccer team, he starts recruiting and training exhibitionists for illegal sports betting. His enterprising hairdresser lays out odds for punters to wager on the length of time a naked runner can stay on the field and shares the proceeds with Näf. Although streaking becomes a trendy new sport in Switzerland, the soccer club owners are furious and police commissioner Sandra Strebel (Doro Müggler) takes on the case.

This witty and humorous romp offers excellent scripting and direction and, um, revealing performances from a seasoned cast.—Palm Springs International Film Festival
