In July

A Hamburg science teacher, convinced he's found true love, sets out for a tryst with a Turkish girl along the Bosporus, whose waters divide Europe and Asia. Accompanied for much of the trip by a female friend who harbors a crush on him, he has a series of amusingly nutty if stereotypical road-movie encounters that strip him of his belongings and pride. Director Fatih Akin (Head On) was born in Germany to Turkish parents, and while this 2000 film can be self-consciously cute, it offers a benign vision of a new Europe where even the trickiest of borders can be negotiated and the sinister hoodlum with a corpse in his trunk can be a good guy with a decent reason for transporting it. With Moritz Bleibtreu (Run Lola Run) and Christiane Paul. In German with subtitles. 100 min.
