Head-On


This multi-award winning German film (Gegen die Wand) takes a look at Germany's immigrant Turkish population. We follow the adventures of two desperate people — he's a 40-something alcoholic, she's a desperate 20-something young woman seeking an exit from her family home. They agree to a loveless and sexless marriage of convenience, which works well for a while, but then things change... In German and Turkish with English subtitles.

121 minutes.
Drama, Romance.
