Soul Kitchen - Fatih Akin / 2009 / Germany (German Cinema)

Deptford Cinema, Lewisham, SE8 4PQ
Mon 27th November 2017

“The film is Akin's love-letter to ‘his’ city of Hamburg, with all its dodgy dives and cosy corners in financially deprived neighbourhoods that are in danger of disappearing. Akin contrasts this with the colourfulness of his multicultural surrogate family and a genuine joie de vivre that ascends to fairytale heights."

Süddeutsche Zeitung

Fatih Akin, the director of “Head-On” and “The Edge of Heaven”, presents a boisterous comedy. A German-Greek restaurateur is forced to defend his bistro, “Soul Kitchen”, against property sharks, tax authorities and his gambling-addicted brother when it becomes one of Hamburg’s trendy locations. 

This screening is in collaboration with the Goethe Institut London, and is part of ongoing season of German films at Deptford Cinema.
