Soul Kitchen

Emotionally direct Turkish-German filmmaker Fatih Akin (Head-On, The Edge of Heaven) helms this surprisingly good-natured comedy about the owner of a funky Hamburg restaurant who tries to keep his business afloat while juggling a runaway girlfriend, a temperamental chef and a ex-con brother. The music (soul, of course) is fantastic. The comedy is of the screwball variety. And the story is loosely based on the food industry experiences of star Adam Bousdoukos (Akin's best friend since childhood). In German and Greek with English subtitles. 99 minutes Unrated.
