Die Angst des Tormanns beim Elfmeter (1972) AKA The Goalie's Anxiety at the Penalty Kick


After letting in an easy goal, the experienced German goalkeeper, Josef Bloch, believing it is offside, engages in a loud and fierce argument with the referee. Moments later, Josef is sent off, then, packs his things in a small bag, and catches the first tram into Vienna, to wander aimlessly from his cheap hotel to the local cinema. Before long, Gloria, the movie theatre’s polite cashier, catches Josef’s eye. She seems willing to hear him; however, can she provide a cathartic means of escape?
