THE KEEPER tells the incredible true story of Bert Trautmann (David Kross), a German soldier and prisoner of war who, against a backdrop of British post-war protest and prejudice, secures the position of Goalkeeper at Manchester City, and in doing so becomes a footballing icon. His signing causes outrage to thousands of fans, many of them Jewish. But Bert receives support from an unexpected direction: Rabbi Alexander Altmann, who fled the Nazis. Bert’s love for Margaret (Freya Mavor), an Englishwoman, carries him through and he wins over even his harshest opponents by winning the 1956 FA Cup Final, playing on with a broken neck to secure victory. But fate will soon twist the knife for Bert and Margaret, when their love and loyalty to each other is put to the ultimate test.

"THE KEEPER is an engaging and warm journey through the career of one of football's finest, but it also has a habit of tripping over its own feet."
Tom Beasley - FLICKERING MYTH

"For the most part, the film embraces its contradictions. As a parable about forgiveness, it's a fine example. As a portrait of the real Trautmann, some questions remain, hanging in the air like a ball on the way to the far corner of the net."
Paul Byrnes - SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

"A delightful slab of Hovis-commercial filmmaking that efficiently orders the vital elements in Trautmann's story."
Donald Clarke - IRISH TIMES

"THE KEEPER is a great story of love in adversity and is handsomely told."
David Aldridge - RADIO TIMES
