Celebrated filmmaker Fatih Akin’s oddball comedy of food, friends, music, and Hamburg’s multicultural, bohemian/grunge subculture. Zinos, owner of a scruffy restaurant, is struggling to stay in business amid a series of calamities and the eccentric characters around him – including an ex-con brother and a brilliant but temperamental new chef. His efforts to save Soul Kitchen unleash a comedy of errors and a poignant journey towards self-realization.

“Never loses its exuberance. . . . Seriously silly.” – Stephen Holden, The New York Times

“You could call Soul Kitchen a romance with sensational music, or a hymn to friendship with romantic resonances. Whatever you want to call it, the thing is bursting with life.” – Joe Morgenstern, The Wall Street Journal

“[Akin is] one of the current world cinema scene’s most exciting filmmakers.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
