    "This film really proves that love is a strong force that can really turn things around. I super love the fact that every scene has a deeper meaning and it really requires me to watch it twice or thrice so that I can deeply understand the film. It was a breathtaking and action-packed love story worthy to be watched again and again. "

    "Omygoodness! This is such an outstanding movie!! If I remember it right this is the very first movie about the GDR. And it really opened my eye that GDR is like a Mickey Mouse state before and behind the walls was the very suffocating atmosphere that the people there experience. This really blew my mind away! The best!"

    "My friends and family know that I rarely laugh with comedy movies because I guess I really have a bad sense of humor anyways, Soul Kitchen is different. This is made intelligently. The humor here is made in a funny but sweet and charming way. I personally love that this film is funny because it creates scenes and situations wherein most of its audience experienced and can relate. "

    "This a good period movie. And I can't believe that 120 minutes of story about football can be this interesting. I can't even stay for 5 minutes to watch a football game but this film made me change my perception about football. My interest for football now is slowly growing hahaha "
