Soul kitchen by Fatih Akin( Visual )

3 editions published in 2010 in German and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Soul Kitchen" is Zinos Kazantsakis's humdrum restaurant in a working-class neighborhood of Hamburg. The food is mostly frozen, unceremoniously zapped in the microwave, or thrown into a vat of bubbling grease. He loves his restaurant and his girlfriend Nadine, even after she leaves him for an assignment in China. Wanting to liven up the restaurant, Zinos hires an out-of-work three-star chef, lets his ex-con brother Ilias spin records, and seeks out new clientele. Soon Soul Kitchen is reborn as Hamburg's newest hot spot. On a whim, Zinos flies to China to rekindle his relationship with Nadine leaving his brother in charge. There is also a slipped disc, a hard-drinking, chain-smoking waitress, a scheming real-estate developer, a Turkish "physio-healer," and a high stakes poker game in the mix. But the film is not about food or love; it's about family, life and human relationships, with a lingering nostalgia for a time when eating out implied getting dead drunk, stuffing one's face with cholesterol and kissing across the table

2 editions published in 2005 in German and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bernd Willenbrock, Gebrauchtwagenhändler in Berlin, ist ein Wendegewinner. Er hat eine Frau, wechselnde Geliebte, Haus und Wochenendhaus auf dem Land. Ein erfolgreiches bürgerliches Leben, doch langsam und zunächst unmerklich beginnt ihm die Sicherheit wegzubrechen: Autos werden mehrmals aus seiner Firma gestohlen; seine Frau und er werden im Wochenendhaus Opfer eines brutales Überfalls. Die vermeintlichen Täter sind bald wieder frei. Da bietet ihm sein langjähriger russischer Kunde eine Waffe an. Er behält sie, auch ohne Waffenschein bis es zu einem weiteren Überfall kommt. In der Bearbeitung durch den erfolgreichen Hörspielregisseur Leonhard Koppelmann wird Willenbrock, der weite Teile des Geschehens aus seiner Sicht erzählt, von Ulrich Pleitgen gesprochen. Durch die eingesetzten akustischen Mittel werden das Gefühl des unaufhaltsamen Zusammenbruchs einer scheinbar heilen Welt und die tiefe Verunsicherung der beiden Protagonisten nachvollziehbar, die die Abkehr von eigenen Grundsätzen beschleunigt. Spannendes Krimihörspiel für weite Hörerkreise. Christoph Heins Roman wurde auch verfilmt

The story is about Hermann Steputat who was born on 2. August 1934 in Jokehnen, a fictitious East Prussian village. It is no coincidence that his hame is Hermann and that his birth took place on the day Hindenburg died and Hitler gained power in Germany. Hermann's father owns a small tailor shop and is also the town mayor. As most people in his small town, he falls in step behind Hitler, joins the NSDAP, and when Hermann was old enough, he joined the Hitler Youth. There were few problems for them in the beginning even as the second world war started. But as prisoners of war were brought to Jokehnen from Poland and Russia, and as refugees from bombed out cities such as Hamburg streamed into their town, the reality of what was happening finally hit home. The Red Army marched in, captured members of his family, some were sent to Russia. As the war ended and the Russians left, the town was under Polish control and the remaining Germans had only several hours to collect their belongings and flee to western Germany
