Storyline

A young German engineer photographs a beautiful Turkish woman without her permission. Her husband finds out and starts a fight. In the midst of the argument the German engineer accidentally kills the husband. With his burdened conscience, he goes out to Berlin's Turkish district to find the woman. He is spotted by her relatives, and while escaping, by strange coincidence he ends up hiding in the man's home whom he has killed. According to Turkish customs, a guest in one's household must be treated with dignity and respect even if he is the enemy. Thus, the tension and difficulties among the Turkish family and the German engineer begin. As long as he stays he will survive, but how long can he live in the home of a man he murdered?

Unassuming production, yet Creative directing
24 January 2009 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

With its indelible impression first made, Berlin in Berlin had caused international repercussions at its time; underlining Sinan Cetin's behind the camera and Hulya Avsar's screen performances.

Cetin offers a creative vision in directing a very usual plot forming a high-tensioned suspenser. Bravely he dishes out very pretentious scenes. On the other hand, in order to conduct the screenplay instead of using a responsive script; he chooses to benefit by populist ingredients. Clemens-Maria Haas's strong music score holds the tension of the film at the top from opening to the ending, even though there are unnecessarily long scenes.

The storyline is very basic and simple. There are only three location sets: Construction building, a street from Berlin's Turkish quarter and the apartment. This might be boring, but at the same time it builds strong focus. Berlin in Berlin is an unassuming production. Don't expect any splendor, or even an average cinematography. All the actors perform very well. Absolutely worth watching.
