ADIDAS VS PUMA: THE BROTHER’S FEUD (Television Release Germany 2016)

Adidas Vs Puma: The Brother’s Feud
—good example of the best of the best in bio flicks—has it all, character development, storyline, and great acting. The audience easily finds itself drawn into the movie as the brothers’ story unfolds. The film flows into answers to the question of why two brothers would fight. Actors Ken Duken and Torben Liebreckt perform their parts excellently with very good body language signals that accent the dialogue. This bio flick easily becomes a WOW! BRAVO! BRAVO! film. Great work for Director Oliver Dommenget. This movie catches the human element well and serves itself up on a solid plate of realism that does not minimize drama. The movie uses mostly German with some English thrown in when needed for storyline purposes. It has great English subtitles.
