Movie Info

The battle of the sexes makes its way onto the football field in this comedy from Finland. Pete (Petteri Summanen) is the goalie for a successful Finnish soccer team who has some news for his fiancée Anna (Minna Haapkyla) -- he and his teammates will be spending the next summer in Germany, where they'll be able to watch the upcoming World Cup series in person. However, Anna and the significant others of Pete's teammates aren't invited along, which makes the women in question quite angry. Anna presents a challenge to Pete -- she'll put together a team of fellow "soccer widows" to face off against Pete and his compatriots, and if the women win, the men will give up football for life, while the women will foot the bill for the German vacation if they loose. Pete and his friends agree to the bet, imagining an easy victory, but what they don't know is Anna was a top-ranked footballer in college, and she's brings in a couple of ringers to narrow the odds -- Carita (Laura Malmivaara), a professional women's soccer player, and her father (Taneli Makela), a veteran coach. FC Venus was a major box-office hit in Finland, and a German remake was in theaters only a few months later.
