Alper is a young Turk living in Berlin, Germany. He is unsuccessfully trying to become an actor. He has big dreams of movie roles but is offered nothing but Kebab vendors or gangster roles. But not even these cliché roles, he can land. He doesn't even have a demo tape. One evening he meets beautiful art-enthusiast Sophie by accident. Although Sophie is not interested in Alper, she needs an Italian for a video project for her application to the art academy. Alper is interested in Sophie and in dire need of a demo tape. He sees his chance and from now on pretends to be an Italian. Alper turns into Alberto. What Alper doesn't know, Sophie doesn't like Turks at all and thinks little of Alper. When Sophie decides to cast Alberto for her art academy project, that's where the laughter begins and romance starts to blossom.

Did You Know?


While having a very small crew and all first-timers on a feature, the director/producer would learn his lines while driving to the set each morning because every evening he had to handle different production problems. Such as actors who already committed to minor roles canceling the night before shooting and casting new ones. See more »

A great romantic-comedy about clishees and love
8 July 2019 | by susanap-46147See all my reviews

This film is created with much Love and respect for human beings and different cultures. It shows the problems about clishees and how to get over them. Murat Ünal understands how to tell serious themes in a very humorous way. I was impressed and I laughed a lot when I was watching Hollywoodtürke. So I can really recommend this lovely Film!
