Fatih Akin's second feature. It's simply a good and enjoyable road movie. Although some parts look technically amateurish and incomplete (especially where it becomes just a montage of snapshots when the couple is in Bulgaria), sophisticated script covers it. Again, Akin's direction and storytelling are really "contemporary" and culturally very diverse, but it's not as heavy and center-focused as theme of the film as "Head-On" (2004), and it (specialty of contemporary European society) is well-used to strengthen the very optimistic and exotic mood of the film. Characters are all attractive and well-developed. Personally, I think the film is little bit too unfocused on the trip itself (like Wenders's films), and the conclusion (and overall story development) is little bit too artificial, but it is definitely enjoyable, cheerful, and heartwarming piece. Nice.
