Description

Meticulous Swiss schoolteacher Balz Näf has beensetting aside school funds for decades, hoping to dedicate a museum to an unsung local author with special meaning to he and his now-deceased wife. So when the money is diverted to build a sports stadium instead, the normally reserved man breaks—gambling all the money on a soccer match he knows has been fixed. But his sure-fire plan falls to shambles when a supercilious streaker charges the field and disrupts the game. In desperate need of quick cash, Balz hatches a scheme with his bookie barber: create an underground syndicate of professional streakers, then take bets on how long they can last naked on the field. The new (illegal) sport is so popular that the police form a streaker task force helmed by his new girlfriend, ultimately forcingBalz to bare all for what he believes. Hilariously outrageous and also incredibly sweet, this heartwarming rompis on a real winning streak.
