Brief Synopsis:
Through the eyes of 10-year-old Nori FATHER (MEIN VATER) offers a very special view of Kosovo in the nineteen nineties. Nori suffers a lot of losses and tolerates strokes of fate without lamenting. But after the early death of his mother he is unwilling to accept being left by his father Gezim, too. Noris' childish consistency shows a kind of extremely profoundness. Something, which reaches above the political context of Kosovo or a story of refugees. The story is driven by the unique character of Nori who has to undergo his coming of age as 10-year-old boy already.
