Warmth from the North: Norwegian Film Festival
The Liverpool Goalie


Cinema Arts
Location:  Auditorium
Language:  Norwegian with Chinese subtitles

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 girlfriends, 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 title "The Liverpool Goalie".
