Memet Ali Alabora,
Two Turks from Germany find each other in their homeland during summer holidays and their need for weed start a funny little adventure. A pretty smart idea that comes from a Turk solves the problem: getürkt.
In Hamburg, Ibrahim "Ibo" Secmez, of Turkish descent, wants to direct the first German kung-fu movie. For now, he makes commercials for his uncle's kebab restaurant. Titzie, an aspiring actress and Ibo's German girlfriend, finds she's pregnant. Ibo is uncertain about fatherhood - compounded by his father's disowning him for getting a German girl pregnant - so Titzie sends him packing. He makes attempts at getting it right, but as the birth approaches, he's still not ready. In the background are three thugs in search of good tripe soup and a Capulet-Montegue feud between the kebab joint and a Greek taverna across the street. Can Ibo be the glove upon that hand?Written by
Watched the movie last night with my girlfriend and I must say, this is the funniest German movie I have ever seen. Being able to speak German like myself is a big plus since the subtitles are horrible. The movies main message is for the German public, especially the Berlinese public to lighten up about multicultural relationships, in other words, Turkish people with German people. It's a great mix of action, romance, comedy and some more action. Great use of the camera, really one of the best German comedy movies I've ever seen. If your on the look out for movies that make you laugh but still touch upon serious issues then this movie is for you.
