Did You Know?

Trivia

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 »

19 March 2011 | by (Andorra) – See all my reviews

I rate it 4.7. The trailer is very promising, that's why me and my wife went to see it. Unfortunately the move stays on the surface. Many topics are referred, but after minutes the dialog swifts away to utter irrelevance. Sorry good have been good, but even for Anatolians/Turkish Folks the movie might be just too boring. Good points were the cinematography and the acting wasn't too bad, at least from most of the characters. I enjoyed shots from Anatolia and the scenery was nice. However you learn very little about their culture and soon the movie spins around boring dialogs and nonsense. They use a bi-lingual trick to get you into the perspective of the immigrants who understand no word. However - this idea gets boring fast. Then I could barely sit through long shots of whining, artificial laugh scenes and sometimes very bad acting. The script also did not satisfy, I could barely make out a leitmotif, something about a generation conflict and nostalgia of the older generation. Sorry, not convinced.

If you want to see a cool immigration comedy, I suggest 'L'Italien', a lot funnier and heavily underrated.
