Product Description

Product Description

Award-winning German drama directed by Angelina Maccarone. Persecuted in Iran for her love of another woman, Fariba (Jasmin Tabatabai) flees to Germany where she is held in a camp for those seeking political asylum. When her application for residence is denied, her desperate prospects take an unlikely twist following the suicide of fellow asylum seeker Siamak (Navíd Akhavan); she assumes his identity and uses his temporary permit to enter the country - and take his place in a men's hostel. In order to pay for forged documents, Fariba takes an illegal job and meets the vibrant Anne (Anneke Kim Sarnau). The two fall in love - but Anne is becoming increasingly suspicious about the real identity of 'Siamak'... The film won awards for Best Narrative Feature at the Seattle Lesbian and Gay Film Festival and the Grand Prize at the 'Image+Nation' festival in Montreal.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This film has a brilliant story, twists and turns and genuinely good acting coupled with well crafted editing and directing. The running dialogue is good (and the subtitles are very good, especially compared to some others i've seen). The story line is moving and interesting from the perspective of gender and sexuality whilst now allowing those themes to overshadow the other issues raised and the simply good quality story being told.

The issues of asylum, detention centres and deportation as well as the plight of newly arrived immigrants are all dealt with here in what appears to be based on well researched evidence. No signs of hollywoodification here.

Aside from all the 'serious' issues this film addresses, it succeeds in bringing the audience an hour and a half of enjoyable entertainment. Thought provoking, funny and insightful, it's a watch that will most likely leave a strong impression.

I bought this film on the strength of the other review. Thank you very much.
It's a lovely film...the lead actor(ess) is amazing and displays wonderful subtlety and gentle strength.
Really good story. I'd say, "Give it a go!" :D
