Lola and Bilidikid is a German feature film from 1999, directed by Kutluğ Ataman . He plays within a homosexual migrant scene in Berlin .


Murat is a 17-year-old Turk from Berlin and homosexual. He spends his nights in the Kreuzberg transvestite and gay scene . The film describes the young person's coming out and also specific problems within a migrant homosexual milieu and their families.


Ataman originally wanted to shoot his film in Istanbul , but had difficulties getting funding for his project.

The film is considered a cult flick, especially among homosexuals.


"The film impressively shows Berlin's gay Turkish subculture."

- DVD & Video Report

“A partially lewd film that wants to set a monument to Berlin's homosexual subculture, but rather reinforces prejudices than dismantles them. In addition, he lacks a harmonious structure, convincing actors and artistic maturity. "

“From today's perspective, the film is perhaps too overloaded with its message. But it ran in the Panorama program of the Berlinale and received good reviews, which was certainly also due to the fact that at the time people were curious about the cultural coming-out of Turkish immigrant children , who told in films and texts about a world that the feature pages little about knew."
