    REVIEW | Hamburg with Cheese: Fatih Akin's "Soul Kitchen"

    German-Turkish director Fatih Akin's penchant for plot contrivance and convolution would seem to have found the perfect fit in the high-decibel comic confection "Soul Kitchen." Appropriately broad (as opposed to his last film, "The Edge of Heaven," which could have used more subtlety in place of its narrative glibness), Akin's new one, concerning a young man's desperate attempts to keep his roadside restaurant open and thriving amidst many setbacks, is overstuffed, more than a little too pleased with itself, yet often winning.

    REVIEW | Business or Pleasure: Mia Hansen-Love’s "The Father of My Children" Twists the Dark

    In "The Father of My Children" French filmmaker Mia Hansen-Love makes something oddly beautiful and complex from a basic comic template. A story of a workaholic dad who has an immensely difficult time juggling business and family, the film nevertheless takes its conventions in a unexpected direction. From the start, all the cliches are in place: a disheveled man (Louis-Do de Lencquesaing) wearing a rumpled suit negotiates about seven different associates squawking into his cell phone while rushing down a Paris sidewalk, both on foot and behind the wheel of a car. His harried wife (Chiara Caselli) sits impatiently at home with the kids, who in...
