In this satirical look at what passes for "normal" in love and sports, debut director and co-scripter Christoph Böll (nephew of writer Heinrich Böll), has a sexually ambivalent young man, Wieland Dietrich (Wieland Samolak) decide to show the world he is "normal" like everyone else and so he considers dance classes -- maybe not an ideal choice for his goal. But after the prospective dancer spots a good-looking athlete in a track suit, dance pales, and running comes to the fore. In spite of his confusion about the right way to the finish line, the track coach (Gerhard Olschewski) accepts Wieland on the team because he is desperate for runners. After his initial, much-bumbled training, Wieland spots a female shot-putter at their first big meet and falls in love immediately -- a stimulus that zooms him down the track on all six cylinders and leads to instant celebrity. The woman (Renate Muhri) feels the same about Wieland -- with the same results. When the coach catches on to the secret of their stellar performances, he unconscionably manipulates them to keep them in top form. The inventive coach has to make sure his love-struck stars remain that way -- a challenge which makes him consider surreptitious hormonal treatments with wholly unexpected results. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
