Watchable But Predictable
9 November 2008 | by (Santa Barbara, California) – See all my reviews

The performances are very good, as is each scene taken by itself. The story is completely predictable, including the end, which I also found frankly unbelievable. The whole hodge-podge of conflicted feelings about ethic identity reminded me of "Once Were Warriors," which was about a violent Maori community in New Zealand. At least that movie acknowledged that the male craziness had a partial source in poverty and racism (without excusing it). Chiko doesn't admit much of anything about Germany - the early parts of the film are a kind of "rebels without a cause." At least for me, steeped in the race relations of English-speaking countries plus France, this film self-pathologized Turkish-German males and sensationalized their emotions in a way I didn't find very insightful. But on the level of production and acting, it was at least an 8.
