Storyline

20 years old Casanova Jan falls in love with the 3 years younger Turkish girl Yasemin, who lives in Germany with her family. She's well protected by her father, who believes in the Turkish traditions. She has to struggle for every little freedom that's certain for her German friends, but still respects and loves her father and keeps the appearance of an honorable Turkish girl. Her love to Jan however disturbs this fine balance. So it's not hate or quarrel that interferes with their love, but the differences of their cultures.

PLEASANT LOVE STORY
12 April 1999 | by J. SteedSee all my reviews

Very pleasant, but slightly stretched love story of a German boy and a Turkish girl, that sets out to be more than just that. Maybe I am prejudiced against abstract feelings like "family honour" (which I do not believe in), on this aspect the film just stays too much on the outside and it thus fails to explain the deeper meaning of it. It is as if the makers were just not to eager to do that.

Very well acted by the young leads and it is easy to see why Jan (the German boy) falls in love; they both are so good that the ending should let every viewer cry out with joy.
