Storyline

Ali has the heart of a lioness, is proud, doesn't complain and works herself to the bone for her two children, as a cleaner in Hamburg's famous nightclub "Ritze". But deep in her heart Ali carries a wound: after she became an unmarried mother in Romania she was disowned by her father - for whom, until then, she was the Gypsy Queen, the queen of all Roma. When Ali discovers the boxing ring in the Ritze's basement one day and gets to watch a fight, it brings back memories of boxing training with her father. Fully equipped and disappointed by life, Ali vents all her fury on the punching bag one evening. Tanne, ex-boxer and owner of the Ritze sees her and recognizes her talent. She starts to box again and sees the chance for a better life.

Rocky at the Hamburger Reeperbahn
12 June 2020 | by KinocastSee all my reviews

A female-Roma Rocky Version at the Hamburger Reeperbahn vs. Million Dollar Baby. The young woman struggles between parenting her daughter while haveng three less-paid jobs. Vast Majority of the actors seemed to be amateurs. Only a few stick out of the mass. The story is not audience pleasing...you have to have a lot of good will and ignore the plot errors, bad writing and goofs.
