A hard-hitting, ultimately tragic tale of the struggle for identity among Kurdish emigres in urban Germany.
Arslen has a sharp eye for telling detail and draws memorable performances from his inexperienced cast in a bitter demonstration of how for too many people life is truly nasty, brutish and short.
At the start of Yilmaz Arslan's somber drama, it's hard to understand why the young narrator sounds so embittered. By the end, his sadness is devastatingly clear.
Shot with such grit that the lenses seem coated with grease, the film offers a myopic impression of an unnamed German city, and that's probably the point.
Devotees of seamy '70s cinema should give this little film a look.
The familiar story of the innocent soul who travels from the country to the big, bad city receives a thorough workout in this crude attempt at a cinematic bildungsroman.
Kurds feuding with Turks in the streets of Germany. Reminiscent of "Los Olvidados" or "Pixote". Grim but rewarding.
The age-old and sadly undying animosity between Kurds and Turks is played out on the streets of urban Germany in this bracing drama from Turkish-born filmmaker Yilmaz Arslan.
The film's violence is not meaningless or unfeeling, but a sad illustration of how innocence is perverted and pain is exploited for political leverage.
Yilmaz Arslan's hard-edged story of Turks and Kurds on the mean streets of urban Germany veers between moments of sensitive humanism and horrifying brutality.
