Switzerland 1991. 35mm, colour, 113 min.
For sixteen years Idris and Resmiye Tütüncü have been living in Switzerland with their children, according to their Turkish traditions and the Sunni Moslem religion. Some of their children were brought up in Turkey; the youngest were born in Switzerland. Depending on their age, they have been influenced to a greater or lesser extent by either Eastern or Western cultures. Traditional customs begin to be questioned in the family. The "foreign" element rear its head.
Two films in one: a man's look at a man's world - a woman's look at a woman's world. A film by Urs Graf and a film by Marlies Graf Dätwyler, interwoven yet clearly representing two totally different approaches to foreign culture, homeland, identity, social order, customs, music, communities and individuals, religion and piety, dogma and mysticism.
