"À Brême, un vieil immigré turc tue accidentellement une compatriote prostituée qui, contre rémunération, avait accepté de vivre avec lui. Le fils du criminel, professeur d'allemand à l'université de Hambourg, lui tourne alors le dos et se rend en Turquie dans l'espoir de retrouver la fille de la défunte. Or, il ignore que cette dernière, une étudiante appartenant à un groupe activiste armé, a fui son pays et s'est réfugiée en Allemagne, où elle compte revoir sa mère. À Hambourg, la jeune fille sans le sou est secourue par une étudiante allemande qui l'héberge dans la maison de sa mère. Lorsque la jeune Turque est déportée puis emprisonnée pour activités terroristes, sa bienfaitrice, qui en est tombée amoureuse, part pour Istanbul afin de lui venir en aide. Au grand dam de sa mère, qui pressent un drame."--Site web Cinoche

Cahit Tomruk is in his forties, a rock 'n' rolling boozer with a purposeless, dead-end job. Sibel Güner desperately wants to escape her conservative Turkish family. Both are German-born Turks equally ill at ease in either culture; seeking a new life, and a morality that will withstand the constant shuttling between codes. They marry--a marriage of convenience. Eventually his nihilism and her promiscuity lead to violence and jail for him, and scandal and possible death for her. She goes into hiding in Istanbul and after he gets out, he goes to Turkey to find her. This dark and vibrant story reflects the unstable moods of Turks in Germany, a half assimilated, half-alien population whose future is a quest and whose passion is ongoing

Carancho by Pablo Trapero( Visual )

2 editions published in 2011 in Spanish and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

22 deaths a day, 683 a month, over 8,000 a year, 100,000 over the last decade. In Argentina, traffic accidents are decimating those 35 and under. Festering beneath Argentina's crime-plagued, class-divided society is the quasi-lawless realm of motor vehicle accidents and their aftermath. Sosa is an ambulance-chasing lawyer. He's lost his license, so now he works the late-night streets of Buenos Aires, signing up injured clients for a predatory firm that will pay them perhaps a quarter, or a fifth, of what the insurance companies pay. Luján is an overworked young doctor who takes ambulance shifts for extra money. Her level of sleeplessness and chemical intake renders her less than desirable for performing emergency life-and-death surgery, but to Sosa Luján seems to be a ministering angel who can redeem his sleazoid existence. While Luján and Sosa can fall in love, the more vital question is can they escape the grim logic of their situation, evade responsibility for their own actions, and outrun a machine determined to destroy them?
