7.8 / 10 (5587)


Owner of a locals-only diner in Hamburg, Zinos is down on his luck. His girlfriend has moved to Shanghai, customers are boycotting the kitchen’s new gourmet menu, and he’s now got back issues. Things improve when a hip crowd embraces his revamped restaurant, but that doesn’t fix Zinos’ broken heart.

MUBI's take

A change of pace from flexible director Fatih Akin (Head On, In the Fade), this ensemble comedy is a crowd-pleasing, lively look at the frantic and frenzied reality of running a restaurant. Set in Hamburg, Soul Kitchen is another of Akin’s depictions of modern, multicultural Germany.
