"We called for manpower, and what arrived was human beings" (Max Frisch, German author). The film does a great job to transport this message, just by telling the heart-warming and utterly funny story of a Turkish family that came to Germany. At times the German language is represented by fake-German gibberish (like in Charlie Chaplin's "the great dictator"), which i found hilarious at times and it helped a lot to get an idea of what it feels like being thrown into a foreign culture without understanding a single word. I was beautifully entertained by this movie, i laughed a lot and also cried a bit. I (german) thought i had no prejudices against Turkish people, but i feel like i lost some today. German teacher's should show this movie in class, and their pupils would love it.
