Fatih Akin has done very few movies, 3 full length movies as far as I know, but they are all gems and this is no exception. In fact I would put this as the 2nd best one after 'Edge of Heaven'. It's a great road movie, buddy movie, dark romatic comedy drama and adveture film rolled into one. It's definitely the lightest of his films but still has some tough moments. Watch it if you're a fan of well written and well directed movies that are not willing to compromise in order to sell to a mass market. I also recommended Fatih Akin's other films, especially the above mentioned one.
Only draw back to this particular DVD is that it's region 1. Not sure why there isn't a region 2 version.
