Almanya - Willkommen in Deutschland
Willkommen in Deutschland
After living 45 years in Germany, the Turkish Hüseyin Yilmaz, seventy, announces to his family that he has bought a house in Turkey and they should return to make the necessary reforms. The idea is unwelcome and causes very heated discussions. In addition, Canan, a granddaughter of Hüseyin, announces she is pregnant and the father is her English boyfriend, and no one knew anything. To comfort his cousin Cenk, a child of six years, which was humiliated at school and labeled as "foreign", Canan tells a fantastic story about how they left Turkey and went to Germany.
one word: AWESOME!
i fell in love with each character and laughed my ass off when it comes to the little details like how a language you are not familiar with sounds like in your head. i thought it was brilliantly casted and the story is somewhat heart-warming. nice camera work and interesting story-telling as well. the german cinema is full of german-turkish films but this is actually a good one!
Anybody who has somewhat of an outsider's perspective to the Turkish culture, or especially to the large Turkish communities in Germany, should really watch this movie! This movie really does a good job in an entertaining and cute way to cut many prejudices and to open up people to the Turkish way of seeing things!
Surprisingly good for a german comedy movie!
