Very good film about social displacement, 1 May 2011
Author: runamokprods from US

Almost crossed over the line to a 9 or 10, but the villains were a bit too easy and one note, and coincidence a bit too key to the story-telling.

None-the-less, a moving, well shot, well acted portrait of the desperation of being a Kurd trying to earn a living in Germany.

A shy, inward young man travels west to meet his brother, and try to send money home to his family, only to find his brother is now a pimp, and they are both caught up in a blood feud with local Turk immigrants. At the same time, our main character tries to shelter and take care of a young Kurdish boy who has lost his parents, and traveled to Germany as an orphan.

Some of the violence is a little over-the-top, and you can feel your buttons being pushed now and then, but it's always absorbing and involving.
