Almanya - Welcome to Germany

Almanya – Welcome to Germany (2011),

97 minutes

Alternating between contemporary Germany, where Patriarch Huseyin invites his grown children and grandchildren on a trip to Turkey, and 1964, when young Huseyin first arrives in Germany as a guest worker, this often light-hearted comedy focuses on generations of cultural misunderstandings inside a German-Turkish household.


As the story shifts between the two time periods, an amusing, and touching portrait of a family with multiple national (as well as humorously confused) identities develops.
