The family-run company "Bogenschuetz & Sons" has produced solid textile machines in Hechingen, a small Swabian city in southern Germany, for generations. But nowadays demand is down since Asian competitors are cheaper. Michael Bogenschuetz (39, junior boss) is forced to negotiate on a sale with the Chinese behind his father's back. But father Paul (90, senior partner) finds out and tries to get help from Michael's sisters Marlies (45) and Marianne (49) to rescue his life's work... GLOBAL PLAYER tragicomically portraits a family, middle-class and entrepreneurial, in times of globalization. Written by sabotage films GmbH

Moving (story)

While there is a lot of accent used in the movie, especially from those filling the small parts of the movie, this is easy to follow. Even for those not from the region this is playing in in Germany. The story of a business struggling will never be out of touch. And tensions in the family is also something everyone can relate to.

The thick head the patriarch of this family has might seem a bit too much to some, but is played exactly like you'd expect it to be in real life too. There are a few clichés played out, but it doesn't hurt the movie and the pace is nicely chosen (not too fast, but still moving along well so you won't get bored). You probably will be able to see where this is heading, but the journey is nicely told, even if you need subtitles.
