Duell der Brüder – Die Geschichte von Adidas und Puma
In the 1920s the shoemaker Adolf Dassler invented innovative soccer boots, and his brother Rudolf started to sell them successfully. Thus was born the Dassler brothers’ company of athletic footwear, which by the early 1940s had successfully captured the German market.
Over time the brothers began to have personal differences that intensified during World War II, and the balance between the creativity of new models and sales growth became increasingly difficult to maintain. By the 1950s the brothers had become irreconcilable competitors, and Adidas and Puma became the major sports brands of the coming decades.
The film is sure to appeal to those who are interested in the history of the world’s brands and want to understand the complicated family business.
Single mother Joy Mangano lives out her days in household chores, trying to settle quarrels in her wayward family and being angry about an inconvenient mop. On the advice of her best friend, she invents a new self-extracting mop, tries to set up production and make her way to the market without the help of television.
The path of an entrepreneur is not easy, but Joy gets help from her family and becomes the founder of a business dynasty. The motivating picture with Jennifer Lawrence in the title role will be close to everyone who wants to change lives, start a business and invent a new product.

The dynamic picture from Oscar, BAFTA, and Emmy winner Adam McKay not only shows the underside of the financial market and the operation of exchange mechanisms.
