Germany 2011 Directed by: Christian Zübert Run Time: 94 minutes Language: German /Turkish Subtitles: English
The world of grumpy taxi-driver Hartmut Mackowiak (ELMAR WEPPER) comes crashing down when he finds out his wife is leaving him after 30 years. Suddenly, he has to rethink his whole life - making him even more of a cranky loner. That is, until the day he gets six-year-old Hayat and her mother as a fare in his taxi. While her mother has to go back to Istanbul for a few weeks, Hayat is supposed to stay in Germany with her grandma. But then Hayat's grandma falls into a coma. Although Hartmut initially doesn't want to have anything to do with the precocious little Turkish girl, he gradually succumbs to Hayat's stubborn charm and decides to help her. Little does he suspect it may also be a case of the little girl helping the big grouch to learn to enjoy life again...
About The International Film Showcase For those who enjoy extraordinary movies not usually available to the general public, the INTERNATIONAL FILM SHOWCASE is what you are looking for.
This project is the brainchild of Efi Lubliner and JoAlice Canterbury. For years Efi and JoAlice have been screeners/attendees at festivals around the country and have compiled a list of films which they believe deserve wider distribution and recognition throughout the United States. After repeatedly recommending their favorite films to friends, they were frustrated to discover that these gems were neither screened in local theaters nor released on DVD. Thus, the birth of the INTERNATIONAL FILM SHOWCASE.
