Ahmet can’t cry. He’s a soldier in the federal army, a paramedic, son of Turkish immigrants, talented boxer, and now also an actor. A person with many facets whose portrait Jannis Lenz has dedicated ample space to. It’s able to capture Ahmet’s strengths and vehemence, but also his tenderness and humor. Bit by bit, a person reveals himself, without stripping naked. A film that talks between the lines, but mainly through its images.
