In Juli. (2000)

What kind of movie do you like to see on a Sunday? Me, I'll often be a bit hungover, so my weapon of choice is usually something a bit light and entertaining, that doesn't demand much brain activity. American blockbusters are always an option, but as the Hollywood cliches usually end up making me more upset than entertained, it's much better to go for a feelgood road movie from Germany.

In July is the perfect Sunday film to watch with your girlfriend, or whoever might have woken up next to you. It's funny and heartwarming, with just the right amount of quirkiness that all road movies must have.

The director, Fatih Akin, is something of a Turkish/German wunderkind, and his film Soul Kitchen is also highly recommended for rainy Sundays.
