Fatih Akin’s ‘Soul Kitchen’ Trailer

Written by on July 28, 2010 

After Head-On and Edge of Heaven, Fatih Akin is easily one of my favorite working directors. His next film is more of a departure, an uplifting comedy about a kitchen. The US trailer seems to paint the movie as a lot more conventional than I’m sure it is but I can’t wait to see it. It stars Adam Bousdoukos, Moritz Bleibtreu, and Birol Unel, you can check it out below via Apple.

Plot: SOUL KITCHEN film centers 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.

Soul Kitchen hits theaters August 20th via IFC Films.
