Yet another amazing film from Fatih Akin, one of the most interesting, talented film-makers working today. Its a moving, complex story of intersecting lives, violence, and politics in Germany and Turkey. Told with a complex, shifting time frame, there's almost a dark fable-like aspect to the constant missed connections between the characters that could provide salvation for all involved. And yet, within the darkness there is also hope. Perhaps nothing works out as it `should', but human hearts find a way to reach out none-the-less. A rich, wonderful, thoughtful and thought-provoking film.
