Goalkeeper Josef Bloch is sent off during a game for
foul play. He spends the night with a cinema cashier.
In the morning, he strangles her.



Bloch drives to the country, to a former girlfriend's
place where he waits for the police to close in on him.

"Its technique of attaining the action through
the images, makes "The Goalkeeper's
Fear of the Penalty" a milestone for young
German cinema."
- Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
