Being an avid City fan and having once had the privilege to meet the great man at Maine Road it was a film I was really looking to seeing. It did not disappoint!! Beautifully filmed, great acting and some amazing CGI to recreate Maine Road and the surrounding terraced houses and the old Wembley stadium. A must for any City fan, truly a brilliant film.

The Keeper tells the extraordinary love story between a young English woman and a German PoW, who together overcome prejudice, public hostility, and personal tragedy. While visiting a PoW camp near Manchester at the end of WWII, Margaret Friar, the daughter of the manager of the local football team, notices young German soldier Bert Trautmann. Her father is so taken by Bert's prowess as a goal-keeper that he gets him out of the camp to play for his local team.

Quite often in sports biopics, the story far super cedes their sporting achievements. This couldn't be any more true in the case of Bert Trautmann as his fascinating story gets told here; becoming a hero to many Englishman not so long after fighting to kill them.
What this film succeeds in is balancing when the right time for poignancy is and when to include some levity. What lets it down is the pacing. There were a few times where I felt the wrong moments were being drawn out, where more important and interesting moments were being rushed through too quickly.
You don't need to be a football fan to enjoy it, it's a human interest story above all else.
Looking at the end credits I think there were more people involved in the making of this film and actually watched it, the story was well written and acted,in the a ABC school of acting and directing Trautmann was obviously quite a special guy and deserved to have this film made about him but the question is after watching it, did it do him justice.
