Cute little teen comedy from Norway but the plot is too thin to make something memorable out of it. 5/10

What I usually can't stand with this type of movie is how fast a nice and clean teenager turns into a Hitler Jr. This movie is no exception: here a maths geek turns into the most hardcore skinhead in Serbia in no more than a few days. Envoyable movie though. 5/10

It was a good idea to give up a concept that worked well with Borat but already started to bore with Brüno. Unfortunatly this movie seems more like a collection of (often very funny) sketches than an actual movie. 5/10

Not that funny for what I was expecting to be an hilarious comedy. Gives an interresting insight of lives and traditions of turkish families living in Germany anyway. 5/10

Very original movie with a fantastic cast (what a great surprise to see Rona Hatner here!) but on the minus side, the movie badly lacks rythm and failed to keep me interrested. Kind of Amelie meets Le Havre, if you liked both you will probably like this one. 5/10
