Almanya - Willkommen in Deutschland

2011
Comedy, Drama
1h 41m
On 10 September, 1964, Germany's one-millionth 'guest worker' was welcomed. Spanning a period of no less than forty-five years, this film by sisters Yasemin Samdereli (director) and Nesrin Samdereli (screenplay) tells the story of guest worker number one-million-and-one - a man named Hüseyin Yilmaz and his family. 'Who or what am I - German or Turk?' asks six-year-old Cenk Yilmaz when neither his Turkish nor his German schoolmates pick him for their respective football teams. (www.berlinale.de)

It chooses the light-hearted, comedic route to tell this sort of story and only really scratches the surface of the real problems of the social integration etc. but at the same time there's this charm and depth to the characters that are definitely the centrepiece to this tale. There are nice little details scattered throughout too that make the characters much more authentic and likeable. All in all, it's just a simple if a bit idealistic story told well and from the heart

It's like Little Miss Sunshine, except with more laughs, more tears, more emotion, more social commentary, more Germans and less creepy child beauty pageants.

I saw this dubbed into Italian which was quite surreal - but it didn't diminish the impact of a quality family drama. As well as giving insights into Turkish and German culture and their differences, the story also compares family attitudes spanning three generations. The way it is structured is ingenious, using a framing device which sees the imagined "old family" moving East-West as their modern selves do the opposite. A satisfying, deep and well-acted piece with cultural interest to boot.

Although has a lot of similarities to Little Miss Sunshine on the surface, there is nothing dysfunctional in this family and the story is so real. And any foreigner living outside home can relate to the story, which is enriched by the actors great performence, especially the kids. A treat.
