British retirees travel to India to take up residence in what they believe is a newly restored hotel. Less luxurious than its advertisements, the Marigold Hotel nevertheless slowly begins to charm in unexpected ways.
The film was shot primarily in German. To give an impression how the Turkish guest workers and their families felt when they came to Germany in the 1960s, the passages spoken by German characters in the flashback scenes are spoken in a German-like gibberish. See more »
I'm a New Zealander living in Germany, my girlfriend is Turkish born of emigrant parents. We decided to see this movie after a recommendation from friends.
It was two hours of laughter and a few tears :) It manages to capture the spirit of Turkish emigrants in Germany, their traditional differences and the subtle humor within it. There were many gems of truth in this film that we were able to understand due to our own experiences in both cultures.
To sum it up : an uplifting funny film about heritage and intercultural family life.
Cheers, Capt Kiwi
