Soul Kitchen is a quirky little German Drama/Comedy about Zino, a man who is passionate about food, but grounded in the reality of what his customers want. The one thing he’s not grounded in is the reality of what his girlfriend wants.
It’s a story that twists and turns, as does Zino’s luck.
When his girlfriend goes to China for a career move, she wants Zino to follow, but problems at his restaurant see him hanging back. Problems are generally easily solved, but seem to always create new ones, as does Zion’s love for his family, especially his jailbird brother.
Not a laugh out loud comedy, Soul Kitchen will warm your heart, makes you mad and chuckle along with the story as it weaves it’s merry way through Zino’s incomprehensible life.
