Solino tells the life voyage of an Italian family who leave their village, Solino, in 1964, to immigrate to Germany, where they set up a pizza parlour and nostalgically name it after their home town. Through the eyes of the two sons, Gigi and Giancarlo, and tinged by Gigi’s passion for the cinema, we are witness to their life at the pizzeria, always in the shadow of the original Solino. A conflict between the two brothers and between the mother and the father splits the family in two: half of them stay in Germany and the other half go back to Italy. Through these four characters Fatih Akin paints a fresco showing four different ways of facing emigration, the shaking of the family roots, and its consequences
