Beautiful! Excellent played!
9 November 2010 | by (Berlin) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of the best German feature films, that i saw in the past decade, maybe it's because most of the actors where immigrants. The female lead role is played by Maryam Zaree and i think she has a great future as an actress if she keeps going like that. Her play was just excellent! Although the other actors where also very good. The movie takes place in Berlin (Germany) an shows the lifes of some people, while they struggle combining their western life and their Islamic religion. It gives a good perspective on the modern life of immigrants in Germany without judging anything. I highly recommend to go and watch the movie while it's still in cinemas. loved it!
