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 »

Makes you laughing while you are crying
13 October 2011 | by gdogan-185-850636See all my reviews

I like this movie because it doesn't show the pain, complexity, difficult lives in a dramatic manner. Instead, it adds humors while showing the reality. When Turkish workers move to Germany, it was hard times for them. They worked all the time and continue to their life in a very bad conditions. Then their families also moved to Germany. Thsese time their children and their grand children live adaptation problems. This film shows in a funny manner staying between two cultures.

What else I like about this film is also the characters and the settings were very natural. I believe this film increase the empathy of Germans and Turks to each other.
