World champion of hearts

It is the dreamlike counterpart to Sönke Wortmann's "Germany. A Summer Fairy Tale". In "Germany - World Champion of Hearts" it is not the stars who are the stars, but the fans. For it was not only the footballers who made the World Cup an unforgettable party event, but the football enthusiasts on the street.

For four weeks, the film team accompanied German and foreign football supporters at a World Cup that has gone down in history as the greatest celebration of all time. The result is a highly emotional film that has captured hope, joy and ecstasy, but also suffering and boundless sadness. The fans give the camera an intimate insight into their football soul and reveal amazing views of the World Cup and its host.

First broadcast: Wednesday, 13 December 2006, 00:00 hrs, ZDF.
