I almost missed this one somehow. It is written and directed by Fatih Akin and stars: Birol Ünel, Sibel Kekilli, Catrin Striebeck, Gñ/4ven Kirac, Meltem Cumbul, Zarah McKenzie, Stefan Gebelhoff, Francesco Fiannaca, Sabine Bredy, Ralph Misske, Philipp Baltus, Hermann Lause, Karin Niwiger, Demir Gökgöl, and Cem Akin.

The story: A marriage of convenience in Hamburg between two troubled Turks changes both their lives in this fine, gritty, contemporary love story. Director Fatih Akin dives deep into Turkish culture and explores the slippery slope of identity and cultural pride faced by Turks who either move to or are born in Germany. Winner of the Golden Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival.

This one didn't need a caption lol

"I've got to spend less money on blow-up dolls and more on decorating"

"I've got to get my eyes checked"

"Is that a can of Spam in your pocket or Are you glad to see me?"

Release date: January 21st, 2005
