Keiner der Bewerber kann es aber dem ziemlich exzentrischen Trio rechtmachen, bis ein junger Mann namens Hugo das höchstpeinliche Verhör cool übersteht. Hugo bezeichnet sich als Schriftsteller, der auf der Suche nach sich selbst ist. Doch schon bald liegt der coole Hugo eiskalt auf dem Bett - gestorben an einer Überdosis Drogen. Das eigentliche Übel befindet sich aber unter dem Bett: ein Koffer randvoll mit Geld. Das Trio beschliet, das Geld zu behalten und die Leiche zu entsorgen, und zwar so, da sie weder an Füen, Händen oder an den Zähnen identifiziert werden kann. Kaum geschehen, treten neue Probleme auf, unter anderem in Gestalt von zwei Polizisten und zwei Killern. Weitere Leichen müssen verschwinden, doch das Grab ist nicht tief genug ... Und dann - langsam aber sicher - machen sich erst abgrundtiefes Mitrauen und schlielich nackter Wahnsinn unter den vermeintlichen Freunden breit

East is east deine fette Freundin kommt aber nicht mit!( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In jeder Grossfamilie geht es turbulent zu, doch bei den Khans ist alles noch ein wenig chaotischer, denn täglich prallen unter ihrem Dach zwei Weltanschauungen aufeinander. Wie ein Patriarch wacht das pakistanische Familien-Oberhaupt George "Dschingis" Khan (Om Puri) über seine sieben Kinder und will sie zu guten Moslems erziehen. Doch die haben längst ihren eigenen Kopf und fühlen sich als Engländer, so wie ihre Mutter (Linda Bassett). Zwischen Tradition und Moderne, Schlaghosen und arrangierten Eheschliessungen proben die Kids den Aufstand gegen ihren Vater. Die Komödie hat der junge anglo-pakistanische Schauspieler Ayub Khan-Din geschrieben, und sie war 1996 in London ein so spektakulärer Bühnenerfolg, dass Damien O'Donnell einen Film daraus gemacht hat. Mit Geschick und handfester Komödiantik breitet er allen Zündstoff aus, den der Zusammenprall der Kulturen und Generationen bietet. (Quelle: Institut für Kino und Filmkultur)
