Made in Europe

Synopsis: Stories of Turkish people living in three European cities Madrid, Paris, and Berlin. Most are illegal immigrants, and while seeking for permits or living in hide outs they go through life dealing with humiliation, insecurities, betrayals, self-pity. The stories reflect the schizophrenic nature of the immigrant world, which turns the movie into something more than life in Europe.

Are you coming over?

I don't know.

Come on man, it's his last night.

So I'm supposed to leave a woman

who's right here to hang out with you?

Dumbass, you haven't even screwed her

yet? You live in the same flat.

I was joking. I'm really tired.

Don't be stupid,

he's your friend, too. Come on.

I don't know.

Come on, don't make such a big deal.

- Ok, I'll be there.

- Come on!

I said I'll go.

I'll be there in half an hour.

Go straight to the house.

Ali's there.

I said ok. I got it.

Something happen?

I have to go out. You remember Ali.

Yeah. What happened to him?

He received an expulsion card.

It's his last night.

Come on! Does he have to

go back to Turkey now?

No, but he's leaving Madrid. We found

him a job in Valladolid. He's going there.

- To do what?

- Teach Turkish.

- No way.

- What else could it be? Kebab of course.

- Damn. It could be anything.

- No, it couldn't be anything.

What are you going to do?

I don't know. Play cards...

...smoke weed, stuff. Bye.

- Bye and f*** off.

- Good evening.

- Good evening.

- Take it easy.

- Thank you sir.

- It's so cold. Don't you get cold man?

- My balls shrunk so much that...

...I don't feel anything.

- The street seems nice from here

- Doesn't it?

- Yes, it does.

We live in the most beautiful

part of the city, don't we?

- Yes, you do but...

- But what?

The neighborhood isn't the same anymore

It's full of pickpockets and robbers...

When my kid was born

I moved out of here.

I didn't want to raise him here.

You know?

- I see. Have a good night.

- See you, kid. Be careful, don't get wet.

- Good evening, Martin. Hello, Carina.

- You going back to work, man?

To listen to the boss's crap?

No thanks.

That's my boy.

Want a beer or a shot on me?

- I'm meeting friends. Another day, ok?

- There are beautiful girls inside.

- Thanks, really, I'm meeting some friends.

- Your loss, man!

- Good night.

- Good night.

Are you coming over?

- Are you asking me?

- Yeah, you.

Just a minute.

How much money did we make?

There should be 1,865 but...

...there's only 1,855.

- Did you calculate it right? - I've checked

it three times 10 euros is missing.

Yusuf, did you put the receipt

for the tomatoes in the register?

- It should be there.

- It's still 10 euros after I took it out.

Sit down, Yusuf.

I accounted for that already, Yusuf.

Here it is.

God, you strange specimen.

- Did you charge that Arab?

- Which Arab?

The one sitting next to the door.

Which one, Tarkan?

There are thousands of them.

- The one who spoke German with you.

- They all speak German.

- What'd he have?

- A regular and an ayran.

- So 6 euros are missing.

- Didn't you say you'd ring him up?

The one who works the register

takes the money.

Animal, didn't you send me

to buy tomatoes?

Don't argue. How many times have

I told you to take the money...

...before giving them food?

We warn him all the time

but he doesn't listen.

Tarkan, don't get me started.

We all know you.

- What do you mean?

- Come on, Tarkan cut it out.

- Say what you want to say. We're all here.

- Cut it out! What should I do now?

Cut your salaries.

I don't want to be like my uncle

but every day there's a problem.

- One day it's the money, the next

it's bread missing. Right? - Yes.

I don't want to say these things but you

force me to. If it were a couple of euros

...l'd understand. But it's 10 euros.

- It's just 6, man!

- It'll turn up somewhere.

- You say that but it won't. And...

on top of that you want raises, advances

If I earn more, we'll all earn more...

If not, how can I give raises?

Look how dirty this place is...

Personally, I wouldn't come in here

either. Pick this place up and...

I'll give you a raise. This place was

making good money, wasn't it, Tarkan?

- Yeah, it was.

- And you? Why aren't you shaven?

- I didn't have time.

- What do you mean "I didn't have time"?

I told you so many times to

buy a razor and keep it here.

Where is it?

Starting tomorrow, everyone will be

shaven. I don't want to say these things...

...over and over.

Open the door, it might be Cengiz.

My brother Cengiz is here.

- Are we going or what?

- Come on let's take the garbage and go.

- Do you have hash?

- I do. Is there anything to drink?

- Sure. What do you want?

- What do you have?

There's beer, vodka, wine.

And a little whisky. Chivas.

Damn, take care of the house before

buying Chivas. Is there any chocolate?

- No, we're not that decadent.

- Nevermind. Come, sit here.

Take this pillow for your back.

Are you ready?

It all fits in a backpack.

So Mr. Ali what about you now?

You know, Halil. We made a deal...

I'll go there and we'll work together.

He doesn't know the business very well.

There's no other choice.

Haven't you thought about

going back to Turkey?

- No, I haven't.

- Why not?

I can't go back in this condition, Halil.

They'd say "You've been away for...

...six years.

Haven't you saved any money?"

Do you still have prison time in Turkey?

The amnesty saved my ass.

But there's still military service.

- So you can't go back.

- I can't.

Look man, I'll tell you a couple of

things. Actually, I'm no authority.

Go on, man. At least it comes

from someone like you.

I'm not saying anything special.

But... be cool, lay low for a while

Like the other day you shouted at

our man 'cause he didn't let you...

...f*** that girl in the restaurant.

He said he couldn't.

He had guests. And you shouted,

"You're a bastard, etc..."

The other day, same thing with Serdar.

Can't you control yourself?

After every fight they call me,

"Come and get him. He'll...

...listen to you.

If not we're going to kill him."

They're children. You believe them or me.

You know they're full of sh*t.

And I also know what a sh*t you are.

I've never a known a bigger slob than you.

You stayed with me three months

and didn't clean your room

- Not once. Am I lying?

- No, you're not.

I'm not finished. One morning

I wake up and Pablo's shouting at me...

"Why are there used condoms in the

onions?" What can I tell him?

Then you go on, yelling "shut up"

at him and saying you'll buy...

...10 kilos of onions if he wants,

and so on Enough of that.

I'm trying to make things better

but they always put up obstacles, Halil.

Come on, who puts up obstacles.

Whatever happened here,

forget about it.

Just go there, work hard,

get your sh*t together

And it's a small city, Valladolid.

You can save money.

All I want to do is run a little

tea garden on the seaside...

- I just want tranquility.

- Lf you save money for two years...'ll have enough money

to start a place like that

- This sh*t is good, isn't it?

- We'll see.

I have been f***ing around

Europe for six years and I haven't...

...made anything of myself yet.

But I've seen lots of things...

...gotten into lots of sh*t,

met people from all over.

And you've also learned some

languages, but they don't give...

...medals to people for
