Tony Montana in Hamburg
7 April 2008 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

Although it is the first movie of Özgür Yıldırım as a director, it reflects the desires and dreams of young people who have nothing to lose in their lives very well. Chiko reminds me Tony Montana, an emigrant and trying to be the leader of narcotic ring. Chiko, in the middle of 2 nationality, German & Turkey, shows all characteristic of both cultures. Director shows emotional and drastic scenes basically with small camera tricks like the style of another Turkish director grow up in Germany,Faith Akın. He leads and guides the other young Turkish directors on the way of showing the life style of young and unemployed people got bored of regular daily living and always looking for an extraordinary lifetime. I think it is worth to be watched. I assure that you will feel their expectations from harsh life very closely.
