Germany/France 2008/2009, 100 min., German (with English subtitles)
Director: Fatih Akin, Screenplay: Fatih Akin, Adam Bousdoukos, Cinematography: Rainer Klausmann, Editor: Andrew Bird, Music: Klaus Maeck, Pia Hoffmann, Producers: Fatih Akin, Klaus Maeck, Starring: Adam Bousdoukos, Moritz Bleibtreu, Birol Ünel, Pheline Roggan, Lucas Gregorowicz, Demir Gökgöl, Wotan Wilke Möhring


Zinos (Bousdoukos), a likable but hopelessly disorganized restauranteur, is the owner of Soul Kitchen, a run-down café in Hamburg that is a second home to a motley crew of lovable eccentrics. When his girlfriend Nadine (Roggan) up and moves to Shanghai, a love-sick Zinos decides to fly after her, leaving his restaurant in the hands of his unreliable ex-con brother, Illias (Bleibtreu).

Both decisions turn out disastrous: Illias gambles away the restaurant to a shady real estate agent, and Zinos finds Nadine with a new lover. If the brothers can stop arguing and cooperate enough to control the mayhem that follows, they might save the Soul Kitchen and their relationship.

Akin’s comedy offers a fresh, take on the “hometown” film genre with an urban, multicultural twist, offering a hilariously entertaining story of self-realization, set to an irresistibly soulful soundtrack.

Presented as part of an 8 film series HEAD ON: The Films of Fatih Akin

$1 validated parking (for events only) on weekdays after 6:00 pm and all day on weekends in the Wilshire Courtyard West underground garage-P1. We are unfortunately unable to offer validated parking during regular business hours.
