    Fatih Akin's immense skill at framing visuals and powerful storytelling are well and truly evident in his first feature. The theme of ethnic conflict within multicultural Hamburg as portrayed here has been repeated in almost all his films since. Macho Turks, Germans, Greeks, Albanians and Serbs lock horns in gangland warfare. The story itself is nothing new, but its still stirring stuff, thanks to great characters, performances and direction. I don't care if his stories never leave Hamburg, I can't wait for the next one.

    A very interesting crime drama directed by Fatih Akin. Definitely worth watching if you like foreign language films, cheers!

    2nd viewing...This time in a cinema... "Dein Geld? Das habe ich auf den Kopf gehauen...Aaaaaahhhhhhhhhh"... Die Einfluesse von Carlito's way, Mean streets und John Woo sind nicht zu uebersehen, stoeren aber nicht im geringsten... Jovanovic und Bousdoukos legen eine Spiellust an den Tag die man nicht jeden Tag sieht, Kurtulus schafft es die Balance zu halten... Fatih Akin ist im Moment Europas bester Auteur,faszinierend seine Entwicklung in nur 10Jahren

    A good kick-off by Fatih Akin, with the helps of intriguing plot and convincing actors, the movie makes the bulls eye, but there is some trouble with the lightining.
