A fresh story with good ideas

The first 10 min. and then at some points in the movie, he reminds me on "Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain", but why should this masterpiece being the only film in his special genre. The movie make remembrances of human life's, wishful thinking's or scenes who were made in other types in a related way J.P. Jeunet goes. The director did a great job I think. Especially his manner to play with stereotypes. The way a lot of German people see the Arabic people in our country is the way Ali Samadi Ahadi let the German people react on the love story of a German and a "persian". "You can't marry a Arab!" - so funny, and in this way he show us our double entendre. And in the other way he let the Arabic descended family have prejudices against the former GDR. This juggling in combination with social themes and this refreshing special "Amélie Poulain"-style makes the movie very great for people who like movies like the cited or maybe "Luna Papa", too.
