Soul Kitchen

Fatih Akin Alemania, 2009

KarstenM's rating of the film Cocina del alma

I love Fatih Akin, and this film was a lot of fun. But the film's genre limits the storytelling, and even within the framings of the genre there should've room for more emotional effect. I'd prefer a bit stricter editing in the mid-part, and more room for certain characters - the chef (Birol Ünel) had great potential, but was left out of the third act. Anyway - wonderful entertainment!
