The fragility of cultural identity with the landscape of global expansion
14 July 2008 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Maria Solrun has touched a nerve with the tale of a young boy's emigration from Saudi Arabia to the city of Berlin where global and social homogenization is in full force.

Resting uncomfortably close to the current plight between German and Turkish segregation currently in Berlin, Maria's 'Jargo' examines and compares the framework of cultural heritage through the context of the individuals that carry them out. We are left with a portrait of a young boy who is caught in a cross-fire of either upholding a tradition within a foreign landscape or shedding it for the new.

With a cast of unexpected talent, this film touches upon the most fragile aspects of cultural and personal identity. Solrun's 'Jargo' bravely portrays cultural assimilation as necessary to human survival yet also the link to ones gravest loss.

*Two thumbs up should be given to both Constantin von Jascheroff and Oktay Özdemir for their exceptional performance in these roles.
