Chiko

D: Özgür Yıldırım

Germany 2008, 92 min, German

This film is like a shot of adrenaline: this brutally honest, unsparing film tells the story of the two friends Chiko and Tibet, who get work in Hamburg with the drug baron Brownie. They move up the ranks quickly but when Tibet siphons off some of the drugs, Brownie’s revenge is ruthless. Chiko has to decide between their friendship and power and money. It all ends in disaster ... In the end, nationalities become irrelevant in this mixture of milieu film and mafia thriller.
