An accident-prone Hamburg, Germany restaurateur named Zinos (Adam Bousdoukos) gets lucky and turns his business fortunes around, no thanks to his leeching ex-con brother Illias (Moritz Bleibtreu). This hang-loose comedy has all the earmarks of a frisky TV pilot, including the surefire combo of sex and food. It looks like a bit of relaxed down time for filmmaker Fatih Akin after the stressed-out cross-culturalism of his 2007 pic The Edge of Heaven. Akin and actor Bousdoukos wrote the screenplay. Light and amiable (99 min.).
