Why in Database: The turtles in this movie play quite an important role. The first appearance is a turtle belonging to the son of one of the film’s protagonists, for whom he asks his mother to look after. In the next scene, however, it turns out that the turtle was not cared enough and faces quite a tragic fate. So the next turtle scene takes place at a pet store where mother goes to buy a new turtle as a replacement – there is a container full of turtles. The last appearance takes place near the very end of the movie, when the stadium and team created by the main character are shown. They have a turtle name (Freiburg Turtles) and adequate symbolism.
