Product Description

Danish drama. Aicha (Semra Turan) is a second-generation Turkish immigrant whose conventionally-minded parents expect her to do well in her studies and go on to medical school like her older brother Ali (Nima Nabipour). But Aicha's real passion is kung fu, and rather than applying herself at school, she starts secretly training at a professional martial arts club where she meets and falls in love with Emil (Cyron Bjorn Melville). Aicha soon discovers, however, that the rules of life are not as straightforward as the rules of kung fu, and she is forced to make some difficult decisions about her identity and her future.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good movie 6 Jun 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We bought the movie for curiosity, because one of the actors has been our fitness boxing instructor. Our expectations about the movie wasn't so high, because of the reviews underneath. I was very supprised to find that the movie was so good!! It had a good underlying socio realism plot with many exciting sequences, and after the movie reflexions. It's a danish movie inspired by Asian kung fu fighting scenes, yet better and more realistic. It does have this karate kid thing, but there's just so much more in the movie than just the karate kid inspiration. I'll definetly check for more movies from this instructor.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good story 4 Oct 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I liked the storyline, but the fight scenes were a bit boring.

A second generation Turkish girl living in Belgium (i think?), struggles to keep up with her families cultural expectations, secretly training in a mixed gender kung fu class and falling in love with a non-turkish boy.

If you like experiencing different cultures then this is a great film. Don't buy this movie if you expect a classic martial arts film with lots of fighting - you'll be disappointed.

2.0 out of 5 stars Note this film is subtitled! 4 Mar 2010
Format:DVD
First thing, the film is a European film with English subtitles. Nowhere on the ad, the packaging or anything states this, which I think it should.

The plot is very basic. Karate kid with Muslim family angst. It tries to be too clever for itself and explores the issue of sexism in this culture and how the young girl overcomes it to train and eventually fight. It becomes tiresome very very quickly.

The fight scenes are actually quite good, and save this film from zero star hell, but are not good enough to keep you awake from one boring scene to the next.

At a few quid, some of you may enjoy it for a couple of hours and then never bother with it again, but I wish I hadn't bothered at all.
