a bloody story of conflicts between ethical groups
18 April 2006 | by zwang-1See all my reviews

It seems that not many people have seen this film. It is shown on a few cinemas in France. The story is about Kurt and Turky conflicts in German. Somebody may feel it nasty because of the bloody scenes and the hate between those two ethical groups. However, I feel very sorrow for them. I was once a immigrant in a totally new environment and I feel uneasy and face a lot of problems, (luckily not as much as those on the screen). When you are the minority and all your fellows stick to the historical hostile towards another minority group, it is very hard for an individual to exit the doomed tragedy. The film evoke two basic questions faced by a lot of newcomers: is this rich country better than the poor hometown? & Can we forget the past in the new world?
