This is a pretty good drama from German-Turkish director Fatih Akin. My only problem is the two leading actors played characters that are not very likable. Or I would have enjoyed the film more. There is an interesting take in the film where the story was punctuated, at several places, by the performance of a traditional Turkish group along side a scenic river. I liked it. In German and Turkish with subtitles.

Ultimately left me feeling sad at the follies people pursue while 'searching or giving up on' themselves. Reminded me of the old saying that if you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there.
