Soul Kitchen, A film by Fatih Akin, NR, 99min, In German & Greek with English subtitles
From gifted Turkish director Fatih Akin (Head-On), Soul Kitchen is a delightfully fresh comedy and a delicious, free spirited story of food, friends, and rock & roll. The film centers on a likable but hopelessly disorganized restaurateur, Zinos, whose cafe is second home to a motley crew of lovable eccentrics. When his girlfriend Nadine 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. 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 get it together, the Soul Kitchen might still have one last chance at staying in business. The mayhem that follows is a hilariously entertaining story of self-realization, set to an irresistibly soulful soundtrack.
