A little bit of freedom (Kleine Freiheit)

IMDB 6.410

The friendship between two teenage boys who are illegal immigrants in Germany

My ratings 7.0/10

My impressions:

Both are looking for a better future but the odds are always stacked against them. Illegals are almost always on the fringes of a community even with the support and help from their friends or family who have the necessary papers.

The Kurdish community with their past history are recreating the same scenario in their adopted country. Those who had betrayed the fighters are also in the same vicinity and there are others who point an accusing finger.

The young boy is caught in an unresolved situation made more difficult by his loyalty and affection for his friend.
