Not too deep but still worth seeing
24 January 2006 | by (Munich, Germany) – See all my reviews

This movie is about a Turkish boy which is brought to Germany by his uncle. He has to sell drugs in the streets of a German city for a Turkish gang. He soon adapts to the scene. He gets to know his uncle and surrounding persons in a nasty way, which means they don't fear using violence even against this small kid. The boy's friend (a German taxi driver) feels responsible for him and tries to get him out of all of it. It is all about family boundaries and having to chose if these are more important than what's right (or legal). Not a super great movie but still worth seeing. It contains beautiful landscape scenes as well.
