This pleasant, undemanding inquiry into European disunity comprises four vignettes set in different cities on the night Galatasaray play Deportivo La Coruna in the Champions League Final.

In Istanbul and Berlin a plan to scam an insurance company comes unstuck; in Moscow an Englishwoman is mugged in broad daylight, then saved by a Russian fairy godmother; while in Santiago de Compostela a pilgrim has his camera stolen but finds no help from the local police. Writer-director Hannes Stöhr keeps the mood so light you can barely summon the energy to shrug your shoulders.
