France, Here We Come!

Ongoing

Dir. Michael Glawogger. 2000, 80 mins. Glawogger, an ardent soccer fan himself, follows the Austrian team’s unlikely ascendance to the 1998 World Cup championship through the eyes of a journalist, a bank examiner and his mother, a pensioner, an alcoholic, a large family, a coach for a children’s team, and a blind man. Against the backdrop of games with Cameroon, Chile, and Italy, this spirited documentary becomes a polyphonic portrait of contemporary Austrian society, all while getting at the heart of how it feels to be a lover of the sport.

Free with Museum admission.
