The tale of two lost souls, in which young Sibel, desperate to escape her suffocatingly traditional family, convinces disillusioned alcoholic Cahit to marry her. After their wedding, the two live together as flatmates but gradually fall in love with each other… However, problems arise quickly.

MUBI's take

Winner of the Golden Bear, top prize of the Berlin Film Festival, acclaimed director Fatih Akin’s Head-On is a raw, emotional love story. Both epic and intimate, and as direct and forceful as its title, it captures irony and complexity in the way only the best humanist drama can.
