Ekin Cheng plays Autumn Yip, a triad mobster who gets caught in Thailand and does 8 years in prison before being released. He visits "The Doctor" and asks for a loan before returning to Hong Kong where he is eagerly awaited by his old triad business partners as well as the Hong Kong police who have set up a special 'anti-Triad' unit just to keep tabs on Yip. The movie shows the confusion shown by the mob and the police over Yip's sudden philanthropy as he makes headline after headline for doing good deeds, not bad. This does not sit well with his old triad boss Brother Hung (Ti Lung) nor Hung's son, Gwai Chai (Stephen Fung). Gwai Chai in particular is itching to rise the ranks of the mob and take over and sets up deals on his own which increasingly puts pressure on himself to deliver. The mob's success hinges on Yip's connections to Thailand and Gwai Chai takes matters to the extreme in order to force his deal to be a success...

Emiliano R (br) wrote: Disfrutable y entretenida comedia de Fatih Akin. Nuevamente el abordaje es la diversidad y el encuentro cultural que hay en Alemania con los turcos y siempre en los films de Akin, Estambul es el lugar de destino. La trama se centra en que Daniel enamorado de una chica turca, decide ir a buscarla a su pais, pero en ese viaje se suma una tal July complicando las cosas. La cinta podria ser una peli rutera como otras, con todas las vueltas de roscas y sopresas que tienen estos tipos de film, pero hay detalles que la hacen muy interesante como es el recorrido desde Hamburgo hasta Estambul y que Akin juegue con una serie de elementos oniricos que le dan una gran calidad de arte. La escena cuando se encuentran fumando un faso en el mar negro es maravillosa. Moritz Bleibtreu hace un gran trabajo actoral.
