Young people between worlds
Born in Germany to Iranian parents, Parvis is an outsider, being gay in the Iranian community, and an "ethnic" within the gay community. Given community service as a translator and general help in an refugee camp for Iranians who are hoping to be allowed to stay in Germany (and who view Parvis with suspicion), he manages to befriend a brother-sister duo, though he definitely has eyes on the brother.
This is another of these films where I wish I could tell whether they were speaking German or Farsi. Some things might be lost in translation. There are various elements of the story that need better explanation. There are some dream sequences that I found superfluous, wishing that they had spent more time sketching out some of the secondary characters. However, the young cast is adorable.
