a highly entertaining heart- warming romantic comedy, very suitable for reducing old prejudices between german and balcan people, this movie, directed by talented young german- turkish fatih akin, contributes a lot to a better understanding between people of different ethnic groups. fine performances, especially from branka katic as a sexy temptress and the director himself in a very funny hungarian- rumanian border scene. the optimistic spirit, the humanity and the sincerity, rarely seen in german motion pictures, make the public leave the cinema in very good mood.
