Storyline

Günther Wallraff assumes the identity of a Turkish man named Ali Sigirlioglu. He opts to disguise himself for his experiment. He alters his appearance by wearing contact lenses and a wig to make himself appear younger, and additionally adopts what he considers to be a stereotypical cartoon accent and affect. Wallraff publishes an ad in a newspaper as Ali Sigirlioglu, stating his willingness to work any job, including hard labor. He takes on various jobs as an unqualified worker, including work as a farmhand, a McDonald's fast food worker, and an emergency response worker in a nuclear power plant. Wallraff concludes his undercover experiment after two years as a result of the physical strain and health problems the various jobs caused him. Written by Ulf Kjell Gür

Best Documentation-Movie

This outstanding documentation of Guenter Wallraff in the middle of the 80's gentleman-got along, the spectators inspired and frightened. Because "Ganz unten" is a voucher for it, as cruelly one is used in Germany, before-all-hires as a foreigner. Fortunately that changed nowadays. Who saw the film, in any case must read also the book. One of the best documentations at all.
