VERY funny movie about immigrant life in Germany
22 April 2011 | by See all my reviews

I watched this movie with my husband, and we couldn't stop laughing! It was such a funny take at life in Germany, one of the precious few German comedies that actually makes you laugh!

The movie is the story of a family's roots, about their experience moving from Eastern Turkey to Germany. The movie shows different phases in this family's story: from their grandparents' courtship in rural Turkey to the day they become German citizens many years later. The story is full of funny anecdotes regarding new places, a new language, different food, a different culture, and how to relate to them. I think any immigrant living in Germany - and not just Turks - can relate to some of the experiences the film shows... On the other hand, I saw it in Germany with a very mixed audience and the whole movie theater was roaring in laughter, so I think the movie also tickled non-immigrant Germans' funny bone.

Nevertheless, as much as I loved this movie, I don't know if someone who does not speak German or has not been to Germany would be able to understand the jokes... There is a lot of language humor and many local references, so it might not be very universal. I think the previous reviewer certainly did not get the humor...But for someone acquainted with German culture, food, etc. this movie is fantastic, and, as I said, it is one of those few German comedies which makes you LAUGH!!!
