Storyline

In Hamburg, Ibrahim "Ibo" Secmez, of Turkish descent, wants to direct the first German kung-fu movie. For now, he makes commercials for his uncle's kebab restaurant. Titzie, an aspiring actress and Ibo's German girlfriend, finds she's pregnant. Ibo is uncertain about fatherhood - compounded by his father's disowning him for getting a German girl pregnant - so Titzie sends him packing. He makes attempts at getting it right, but as the birth approaches, he's still not ready. In the background are three thugs in search of good tripe soup and a Capulet-Montegue feud between the kebab joint and a Greek taverna across the street. Can Ibo be the glove upon that hand?

Great hilarious movie with cultural and serious elements
25 February 2006 | by (Den Bosch, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This movie just rocks! It's a great combination of Action, Romantic, Serious, Cultural and last but not least Hilarious scenes. It shows a Turkish family with combined Turkish and German habits. The scenes in which the 'father to be' tries to impress and persuade his girlfriend that he will be a good father are just hilarious. Also the scenes between the grandpa to be and his son are serious and filled with humor at the same time. Among the sweetest scenes are the ones in which the much younger sister of the 'father to be' tries to mend the broken relationship between her brother and her future sister in law. If you're interested in Multicultural society, want to have a good time, laugh like hell, and enjoy serious moments as well, you can't afford not having seen this movie ! Enjoy!
