    pretty good for low budget. not really origonal at all but the story is good enough to be told more than once.

    Ein hervorragend inszenierter deutscher Gangsterfilm mit brillianten Gegencharaktären, aber leider mit einem zu durchsichtigem und voraussehbarem Drehbuch.

    Nice filming (has a bit of Sacrifice) but predictable ending. In the beginning of the movie (first 30 mins) I thought this a pretty cliched stuff but actually it is not!

    Chiko (Denis Moschitto) is unemployed, but he wants to be rich. He wants to get out of his Ghetto-life and he wants a bright and shiny future in front of him. His best friend Tibet (Volkan Özcan) leads a life just as hopeless, as Chiko. He needs money, because he wants to buy a kidney on the blackmarket. To safe his mother's life. Chiko is smart and cheeky and he manages to impress Brownie (Moritz Bleibtreu), one of Hamburg's most dangerous drug dealers. Chiko gets the chance to show his skills and he is good in selling drugs...until Tibet fucks everything up. He wants the money for his mother at once. Brownie has his revenge on him. And Chiko, as Tibet's best friend, wants to have his revenge on Brownie...but he agrees on a new deal with Brownie instead, behind Tibet's back. While Chiko is successful, happily in love with Meryem (Reyhan Sahin, a.k.a. Lady Bitch Ray), appreciated by Brownie, and living the life he always wanted; Tibet is down on his luck. Jealousy and despair lead to an evil end of the friendship. If you like the genre, you will sit right with this movie. I was a bit disappointed. The male turkish world is hard for me to understand.

    decent enough and parts coming off well, a crime story about a guy tring to make his way up the ladder. his downfall and all that. so nothing fantastic or cutting edge about it, but good, entertaining and goes nicely, a film that does what it does

    An excellent German riff on Scarface. A very intense film with some great acting.

    a pretty powerful film of one man's ambition to be a top player in the drug game, all coming at a cost that he will ultimately regret. good performances from the actors and the film goes at a respectable pace and doesn't lag or overstay it's welcome. for fans of gangster movies this film won't disappoint.
