Züli Aladag's critically acclaimed, but controversial movie deals with the conflict of Can, son of Turkish immigrants, and the Laubs, a supposedly liberal middle class family. Simon Laub, professor of literature, and his wife Christa, real estate agent, live with their son Felix in a safe and quiet Berlin district. However, Felix gets in trouble with Can, son of a Turkish greengrocer, who starts to tyrannize the family. As he is annoyed by the boy's attacks, Simon -despite his political correct attitude- humiliates Can, which starts a vicious circle of anger and violence... Written by fippi2000

Don't watch this film!
5 December 2006 | by aphex83See all my reviews

I've seen this film a few days ago and i'm still a bit angry about the time i wasted on it. If i had known how bad i gets in the second half, i wouldn't had started watching it. Basically, i'm not against German movies, there are even many German ones amongst my favorites, but this film is crap. The first sequence starts with break dancing Turkish juveniles with migration background (according to the German official's language). In fact, i'm living all my live in an area with a quite high proportion of foreigners, especially Turkish people and i've never seen or heard of Turkish break-dancers or basket-ballplayers. Maybe there are some on German streets, but i think this was only put into this film to satisfy the stereotype image of the unexperienced viewers. I could accept the subplot dealing with problems in the relationship of the young boy's parents and in fact the acting of all actors is solid. But after all a pretentious viewer has to admit, big parts of the screenplay is rubbish. The whole story is based on the young boys improbable naivety. After he got beaten repeatedly, he accuses his father, why his generation has had let so many violent people into Germany, just to declare friendship a few days later with the same boy, who is responsible, that he got beaten up a few days before. Maybe, this review has made you curious for this movie and in fact i can't keep you away from this film, but i can recommend you an similar film, which is also set in a similar surrounding and really worth watching it: Knallhart by Detlev Buck.
