Editorial Reviews

The female karate kid.

Newcomer Semra Turan delivers a star-making performance as Aicha, a Copenhagen high school senior who dreams of becoming a champion mixed martial arts fighter. But when her conservative Turkish parents demand she go to medical school, Aicha instead begins secretly training at the local academy of Sifu (Xian Gao of CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON fame). In a brutal sport where men make the rules, can a strong-willed woman battle her way to respect? And in a world where cultures clash as hard as any combat, will she survive long enough to decide what s worth fighting for? Cyron Melville and Sadi Tekelioglu co-star in this explosive drama featuring stunning choreography by Xian Gao that goes far beyond the usual martial arts movie.

I watched this movie on demand without expectations; just intrigue because of my partial Danish background since this movie is a Danish film with English subtitles. An impressive film. The plot is reminiscent of a "Karate Kid" save that the conflicting battle is more internal rather than external. Aicha (Semra Turan) is a strong-willed girl who does not simply conform to her conservative Muslim culture which creates indifference between her, her family, and others of her culture.

Her parents are Turkish immigrants with conservative family and cultural values. Her father expects his children to be raised in a prosperous nation, such as Danmark, intent on becoming successful doctors. Aicha, however, doesn't comply with such demands and instead fights, literally, to earn a different kind of respect. She is fascinated by the martial arts and with persistence, convinces the master (Sifu) of a respected academy to allow her admittance to train. Aicha trains in secret against the demands of not only her family, but her culture as well, where man is the dominate figure (What is not clear is how she finances her training).

That aside, her brother, a doctor at a local hospital, is engaged to a young woman whose Muslim family is also disassociated with the host Danish culture. Omar, a friend of the bride-to-be's brother, is a martial artist in the same academy as Aicha and believes it disgraceful of her to be a part of something not meant for a Muslim woman. He refuses to train with her, and also finds it a shameful that she takes a liking to a fellow Danish peer in the academy. This developing relationship, and the control it gives Omar, become the catalysts for an internal culture clash that may produce fatal results.

I cant say enough about this film. I saw it on On Demand, it looked interesting, so I gave it a try. Lucky for me I did. I was hooked from the beginning and the film was a great ride from start to finish. This has some really entertaining fight scenes, but the story and the struggle between culture and tradition really created a fascinating and enjoyable tapestry. Watch this film if you enjoy martial arts, and watch it even if you DONT like martial arts. Just watch it if you love good movies.

I put this film on last night, intending to watch a few minutes before I went to bed. Well, that didn't work out. Once it started, I couldn't take my eyes off the screen. This is a wonderful movie with an intelligent storyline and great martial arts action. Highly recommended!

I am so happy I came across this movie serendipitously. I can't say enough about how much I LOVED it!! It is now one of the 12 movies I actually bought for my personal collection as I rarely feel the need to watch/access a movie more than once. Though I do really enjoy the occasional subtitled movie (mostly in Danish), I typically have to be in the mood to watch them and I was blown away at how easy it was to follow this amazing story at 2 am. I have seen the movie 7 times now and it has gotten better each time.

Upon coming across the film and reading the very brief synopsis, I thought I was in for a kick-ass chick movie (which are my favorites). It's not quite that but it is an excellent film. There are some fighting scenes but if you are looking for your typical Kung Fu or martial arts movie, this is not it. It is very much a story first with a great plot and with Kung Fu as one of its several themes. The real Kung Fu scenes, though slightly limited, are excellently choreographed and executed.

I thought everything about this film (soundtrack, casting, acting, plot, cinematography, choreography, etc.) was pretty much perfect. The most powerful of which was the performance of Semra Turan which had me captivated through every millisecond of the movie. I was so enthralled with her performance. She sells her character as well as any actress has ever. I really wish she would do more/other stuff.

I strongly recommend this movie to anyone who can appreciate subtitled films.

I really enjoyed this movie.
I found it to be a 'Bend It Like Beckham' figher movie.
The ending was good too.

This is one of the best believable martial arts movies I have seen in a long time.
The story is very good, girl from a traditional Muslim family is a martial art student.
The family wants the best for her, stay in school and become a doctor. But she meets a white Christian martial arts student. She fights back her feeling for him and is also betrayed by a Muslim guy martial arts student who thinks she should not be there.
Not to over the top scenes,very good movie.

I bout this move because I am a bid marshall arts fan. The reason I bout this move is because it had no wire tricks. What you saw was pure Marshall Arts skill. The real thing. Excellent move.
