Head-On (Gegen die Wand)

Cahit, in a neck brace after driving his car into a wall, is more than a little surprised when a beautiful Turkish-German woman, Sibel, proposes marriage--especially considering they met through their mutual desire to commit suicide. Cahit's Turkish blood is enough to satisfy Sibel's overbearing family and the two begin an unlikely marriage of convenience that has the even more unlikely consequence of making them want to live. This uncompromising drama won numerous awards including Best Film and Best Director at the European and Berlin film awards. "Raw, powerful, extraordinary... a love story of surprisingly epic proportions!"--Newsweek

Director: Fatih Akin, Germany, 2004, 121 min., German and Turkish with English subtitles

 With ten multi-platinum albums and sixteen Top 30 hits, Foreigner is universally hailed as one of the most popular rock acts in the world with a formidable musical arsenal that continues to propel sold-out tours and album sales, now exceeding 75 million. Responsible for some of rock and roll's most enduring anthems including "Juke Box Hero," "Feels Like The First Time," "Urgent," "Double Vision," "Head Games," "Hot Blooded," "Cold As Ice," "Dirty White Boy," "Waiting For A Girl Like You," and the worldwide #1 hit, "I Want To Know What Love Is," Foreigner continues to rock the charts almost 40 years into the game.

At Foreigner's core is the founder and Songwriters Hall of Fame member Mick Jones, the visionary maestro whose stylistic songwriting, indelible guitar hooks and multi-layered talents continue to escalate Foreigner's influence and guide the band to new horizons. He reformed the band after a 2002 hiatus and selected lead singer Kelly Hansen to help write an inspired new chapter in the history of Foreigner.  Mick also brought in bassist Jeff Pilson, multi-instrumentalist Tom Gimbel, guitarist Bruce Watson, Michael Bluestein on keyboards, and Chris Frazier on drums. An unprecedented new level of energy lead the group to a re-emergence of astounding music that speaks to long-time Foreigner fans and younger generations.
