Storyline

Leroy (16) is an Afro-German boy who, not only notoriously unlucky, must also battle with an identity crisis born of the fact that he is both a highly cultured, well-mannered German AND black, thus belonging to two minorities. Leroy has a girlfriend, Eva, whose brothers happen to be Neo-Nazi skinheads, Leroy's natural enemies. After some time, and against all odds, Leroy and Eva's brothers have managed to become friends, and one day they ask Leroy to join them, afro and all. Leroy declines and sets off on a long walk through Berlin with his Greek friend Dimitrios. Whilst distributing supermarket leaflets across a dirty, overcrowded city pulsing to a 70s soul-groove, Leroy and "Dimmi" discuss the sorer spots of the German condition human: white foreigners and black Germans, the problem Germans have saying the word "Jew", colored people on tanning beds and Hitler's plan to convert the colors of all German traffic lights to black, red and gold. When Leroy and Dimmi almost get beaten up ... Written by Armin Völckers

Good comedy with interesting starting points
25 July 2009 | by (Venice, Italy) – See all my reviews

The movie starts immediately as a comedy, so you have to take the weight of the social topics discussed - afro-German integration, the Germany nowadays relationship with its past etc - only as a contour, but serious enough to make this movie a very good drama. There are some falls, as the whole "Blacula topic", but it entertains without holes in the plot, and the final result that you have about German society is good because you see Germans are able to be ironic about their past and they are better than people usually think, about racial integration. In Berlin at least. The last part - the solving one - is a little pour, the perception is that the idea to make a rap band with Eva's brothers is hasty and not enough introduced during the movie. Last consideration: Alex Morel is very good in acting performances, leaving aside his gorgeous face, without whom I don't think the drama effect would have been so effective. Good choice for the casting.
