Soul Kitchen (MA)

 21 November

Directed by

Fatih Akin

Celebrated filmmaker Fatih Akin, known for celebrated dramas like HEAD-ON and THE EDGE OF HEAVEN, serves up a delightfully fresh comedy with his latest award-winning film. SOUL KITCHEN is a delicious, free spirited story of food, friends and rock & roll, winner of the Special Jury Prize and the Young Cinema Award for Best Film at the Venice Film Festival, and a smash with audiences at the Toronto and Tribeca film festivals.

 

SOUL KITCHEN film centres on a likable but hopelessly disorganized restauranteur, Zinos (co-screenwriter Adam Bousdoukos) whose cafe is second home to a motley crew of lovable eccentrics. When his girlfriend Nadine up and moves to Shanghai, a love-sick Zinos decides to fly after her, leaving his restaurant in the hands of his unreliable ex-con brother Illias. Both decisions turn out disastrous: Illias gambles away the restaurant to a shady real estate agent, and Zinos finds Nadine with a new lover. If the brothers can stop arguing and get it together, the Soul Kitchen might still have one last chance at staying in business. The mayhem that follows is a hilariously entertaining story of self-realization, set to an irresistibly soulful soundtrack. -- (C)IFC
