Originally, the screenplay was set in Oberhausen. It was changed to Duisburg because the film team found several locations in Duisburg that had hardly changed since the 1960s. It seems that Duisburg city authorities were not happy to hear that. See more »
Well, this in an outrageous flick. I saw it the other day with my girl friend, and both of us were/are very impressed by this movie. The first half, when they just arrive in Germany is very great told.
The young boys play their roles very good, especially the young gigi. He is great! My eyes were wet all the time, its so much feeling that is transmitted through the silver screen. And the music makes this flick perfect. it always supports the unique scenes. Well, i just have to say, GO FOR IT! By the way, Akin is a great director. 9/10
