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.
A German movie about our fellow citizens with Turkish backgrounds? Havn't heard of that before even though it would be weird if something like that wouldn't exist.
Almanya is an honest, mostly comedic view at Germany from the view of Turkish immigrants. It's very honest, at times very funny and I really liked the idea of making the Germans only speak gibberish at times so the viewers don't understand, just like the freshly immigrated family.
It tells 2 stories at the same time: The story of Hüseyins way to Germany in the 70s and the story of the now bigger family in modern day, including the kids that grew up in Germany, travelling back to Turkey for vacation.
I expected a funny culture-clash movie that touched some neuralgic issues in German-Turkish relations and the first part of the movie delivers just that.
The cinematography was fine, I loved how the languages were dealt with - sometimes with subtitles and sometimes with total gibberish when Turkish people hear Germans talk - brilliant idea!
But the last part was way too schmaltzy and it generally failed to flesh out the many family characters more. Worth watching in any case and perfect for a rainy Sunday morning!
Il tocco lieve di Almanya nel mostrare l'emigrazione è un balsamo. E quei turchi in terra straniera non possono non far pensare anche a noi.
Dieser Film zeichnet wichtige Stationen eines türkischen Gastarbeiters und seiner Familie nach, die ein neues Leben in der Bundesrepublik beginnen wollen.
Dabei will Almanya nirgendwo anecken und ist ein bisschen charmant, ein bisschen lustig, ein bisschen ernst, ein bisschen traurig aber leider nicht so richtig ein Plädoyer für sich gegenseitig befruchtende Kulturen, sondern ein konventionell inszenierter sowie positiv gehaltener Kommentar zu den möglichen Integrationsstadien in einer fremden Gesellschaft.
Mit Almanya kann man Spaß haben. Ein bisschen.
