I watched this movie as a Turkish woman who is about to get married to her German boyfriend. I had much fun :) Culture difference between Germans and Turks is big and some scenes in the movie reflect so well how nerve wracking and crazy that can get for a couple. Still, the movie is not so dramatic. It's simply fun to watch with some cool romantic scenes here and there, like the Berlin skyline scene with music from the car :)
I find Götz, the German boyfriend (whose name means nearly "ass" in Turkish) a well crafted character. Actually Florian David Fitz who plays Götz brought me to this movie and he pulled Götz off with grace. Aylin, the Turkish girl played by a non-Turkish actress, is more of a shallow character. Wish they put more emphasis on her. A gem was Charly Hübner as Horst, the cynical best friend! Quoting: "Die Welt is schlecht, Frauen sind böse, and Maenner sind dumm." (The world is bad, women are evil, men are stupid.) Also found Katrin Sass as Götz' mother realistic and well played.
Some people say this movie is a little racist, stereotyping Turkish people. Yeah, stereotypical, but I didn't get offended as a Turkish person watching it.
