Martin Schultz is released after 11 years of imprisonment. As a citizen of the former German Democratic Republic, he experienced the fall of the Wall from his prison cell. Martin is full of hope when he returns home, but he hardly recognizes East Berlin again. The "New Berlin" has already taken over and the "Old East Berlin" clings desperately to its last remaining traits. The eleven-year absence is like a time machine and Martin runs into one difficulty after another while finding his place in this "new" world. Adapted from Helmer’s 1999 short, meticulously researched pic combines resolutely realistic tech approach with sly humor inherent in ex-con’s poignant learning curve.

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

Coffee was served with much splendor at the harems of the Ottoman palace and mansions. First, sweets (usually jam) was served on silverware, followed by coffee serving. The coffee jug would be placed in a sitil (brazier), which had three chains on its sides for carrying, had cinders in the middle, and was made of tombac, silver or brass. The sitil had a satin or silk cover embroidered with silver thread, tinsel, sequin or even pearls and diamonds.
