English Summary:

Soul Kitchen is a 2009 German comedy film directed by Fatih Akın, with a screenplay by Akın and Adam Bousdoukos. Bousdoukos based the story on his own experiences as the owner of a Greek tavern named "Taverna", where Akın was a regular customer. Akın filmed the movie entirely in the Hamburg area.

Zinos, a German of Greek descent, owns Soul Kitchen, a shabby, run-down restaurant providing working-class food in the Hamburg area, in an old warehouse space. The business is struggling financially, and tax inspectors ask Zinos for payments. Occasionally a punk rock band uses the restaurant as practice space, but never pays rental fees. An old sailor, Sokrates, continuously works on his boat at the warehouse but is never able to pay the rent.

At a family gathering at an upscale restaurant, Zinos argues with his girlfriend Nadine, a journalist, who is preparing to leave on assignment to Shanghai. During that dinner, the chef, Shayn, has an argument with a customer, and the restaurant owner dismisses Shayn on the spot. Afterward, Zinos meets an old schoolmate, Thomas Neumann, and his fiancée Tanja. In spite of their arguments over Nadine's assignment to Shanghai, Zinos and Nadine maintain contact via Skype. Zinos' incarcerated brother Illias, a gambler and hustler, is serving a prison sentence, and has "special leave" where he is allowed occasional leave from the prison, but must do community work as part of the terms. Zinos agrees to hire Illias to work at Soul Kitchen, to the disdain of bartender Lucia, because Illias has never had a regular job. Illias asks Zinos not to tell anyone about his criminal past. Later, Zinos injures his back when trying to move a heavy dishwasher. He has no medical insurance and cannot afford full medical treatment. Zinos meets a physical therapist, Anna, in the course of his recovery.

 

Hungarian Summary:

Egy lepusztult raktárnegyedben üzemelteti középszerű éttermét, a Soul Kitchent Zinos Kazantsakis, a séf. Vendégköre nagyjából állandó, a hozzá betérők leginkább a kellemes környezetért és az alacsony árakért esznek nála, mintsem az ízes falatokért. Sajnos Zinos sorsa rosszra fordul (majd még rosszabbra): barátnője faképnél hagyja, ám ő úgy dönt, követi a lányt Kínába. Addig az étterem vezetését bátyjára bízza, ám arra tér haza, hogy már a bűnöző haveroké a vendéglő. Vajon sikerül-e visszaszereznie?
