East Is East

Quinzaine 1999 | Feature film | 1h36

George Khan, proud Pakistani and chip shop owner – “Ghengis” to his kids – rules his family with a rod of iron. He thinks he’s raising his seven children to be respectable Muslims. But this is Salford in the North of England, in 1971. Much as George’s English wife, Ella, loves and tries to honour her husband, she also wants her kids to be happy. The children, caught between bell-bottoms and arranged marriages, simply want to be citizens of the modern world.
