“An absorbing biopic of one of English football’s finest imports…an excellent tribute” (Stuff – New Zealand)

“tells a remarkable true story…If you’re not a football fan you shouldn’t disregard The Keeper. This isn’t a sport film as such – it’s the compelling story of a truly remarkable man.” (RTE – Ireland)

“tells the extraordinary true story of Bert Trautmann…there is no denying that The Keeper is hugely watchable, not least thanks to its extremely likeable cast.” (HeyUGuys)

The story of a man whose love for football, for England and for the love of his life, Margaret, saw him rise from Nazi 'villain' to British hero. Bert Trautmann, the German goalkeeper won over even his harshest opponents by winning the FA Cup Final for Manchester City in 1956 - playing on with a broken neck to secure victory.
