SOUL KITCHEN film centers on a likable but hopelessly disorganized restauranteur, Zinos, whose cafe is second home to a motley crew of lovable eccentrics. When his girlfriend Nadine up and moves to Shanghai, a love-sick Zinos decides to fly after her, leaving his restaurant in the hands of his unreliable ex-con brother Illias. Both decisions turn out disastrous: Illias gambles away the restaurant to a shady real estate agent, and Zinos finds Nadine with a new lover. If the brothers can stop arguing and get it together, the Soul Kitchen might still have one last chance at staying in business. The mayhem that follows is a hilariously entertaining story of self-realization, set to an irresistibly soulful soundtrack.
Mystery March Challenge - Week Two
First off, before I get into the proper review, I'd just like to say that
it's a testament to how enjoyable this film is, that I could really appreciate it despite the fact that my download had crap English subtitles. For each scene, I literally had to translate the translation.
Anyway, moving on.
Soul Kitchen is just pure, unadulterated, full-fat fun. Despite being a little rushed and disjointed at times, it is packed full of wacky, feel good humor, and is a joy to watch. Zinos (Adam Bousdoukos) is the owner of a run-down restaurant in the middle of an industrial estate in Hamburg. The place is popular with the locals, but fails to…
A feel-good film with groove, heart and soul (actually, more like funk) that stays with you for a long time. The characters are colourful, the use of music is perfect and the whole idea of the film is very likable.
With some minor adjustments it could have been a classic. Add a little more focus on the food, music, staff and the running of the restaurant, and drop some of the sub-plots involving crime and cash, and "woila!", you got yourself a little masterpiece!
Flawd, but what the heck! This was undoubtedly a great viewing experience, even though it has it's weaknesses. I was smiling and laughing the whole film through and when it ended I was begging for more. That's obviously a sign of quality in my opinion.
I wish this place existed in real life, I'd practically live there! :)
Una divertida pel.licula que destaca pel repertori de personatges, el bon us de la música i la facilitat per aconseguir un somriure de l'espectador. Llàstima d'un final tan previsible.
A fun movie that should be noted by the repertoire of characters, the excelent use of music and the ability to achieve a smile in the spectator. It's a shame such foreseeable ending.
ich liebe adam bousdoukos.
ich liebe moritz bleibtreu.
ich liebe birol ünel.
ich liebe, dass es zum schluss ein kleines
und ich liebe filme von fatih akin.
aber ich hasse wotan wilke möhring
(zumindestens in diesem film).
5 mal liebe und 1 mal hass = 4 sterne!
My back hurts emphatically after seeing Kazantzakis plagued by his hernia. A well played mess of a film, aided by a great soundtrack (which had little or nothing to do with either kitchen or cook) and by Moritz Bleibtreu, who is always a joy to watch; his performance here is no exception to that rule.

Week 4 „Still one place to go“
Film Soul kitchen utterly and completely corresponds to it's name.
It is a perfect example of extra-light genre film made with good taste. I always suggest it, when someone asks for a pleasant comedy for a cosy evening, due to it's total universality. Everyone would find something to relax his mind in this paradigmatic story of hard times, when life gives you just too much lemons, but you still eventually somehow manage to make a lemonade from all of them.
You can easily recommend it to your mate, to your grandma or to a total stranger and have no doubt they would have a good time watching this movie. It…
Wasn't that funny, was it?
-0.5 points for constant yelling.
Enormously good film. Especially when you live in Hamburg
This is still such a funky fun comedy brought to life with great characters and pace. Feels like a Guy Richie movie with heart. My only criticism would be it feels just a little contrived at times but it is so enjoyable that you'll forgive all that.
Wow ein deutscher Feel Good Movie und ganz ohne Schweighöfer, Schweiger und Ostalgie? Das geht ja gar nicht. Soul Kitchen schafft es trotzdem, vielen Dank an Phillip von den Celluleuten für die Empfehlung. Ebenfalls gefreut habe ich mich darüber, den "Abteilungsleiter der Liebe" in einem richtigen Film zu sehen. Er heisst glaube ich Birol Ünel und spielt auch in "Gegen die Wand" mit, welcher ebenfalls noch auf der Liste steht.
Aber zurück zum Film. Soul Kitchen handelt vom Griechen Zinos und seinem namensgebendem Restaurant. Dazu kommen aber auch einige Nebenfiguren wie sein Bruder aus dem Knast, gespielt von Moritz Bleibtreu, ein Geldhai, gespielt von Wotan Wilke Möhring, und viele andere illustre Gestalten. Dann gibt es genretypische Hochs und Tiefs, darunter…
Jo. Mehr als man von deutschem Kino sonst so erwarten kann.
In Hamburg, German-Greek chef Zinos unknowingly disturbs the peace in his locals-only restaurant by hiring a more talented chef.
Loved the humour and feel of this one. It's as cool as you like and seemingly effortless in execution. A definite feel good. Watch it with or without the subtitles, in English dubs or native German, turn the screen off or keep it on, just enjoy. Guten Appetit!
almost a perfect popcorn picture but it takes some jokes way too far way too many times, nonetheless it is a very well acted and enjoyable venture.
It reminds me of the italian Fantozzi.
