Seminar paper from the year 2001 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 2,0 (B), Ruhr-University of Bochum (Englisches Seminar), course: An Introduction to Commonwealth Studies through Film, 4 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Introduction The construction of minorities in films has always been a delicate task for all moviemakers. Race, class and gender have to be created by the media in a special way so that anybody knows that there are outcasts who are represented by cinematic devices. How are outsiders or foreigners represented in a movie? How do cinematic devices, e.g. shots, narration, camera movements, cuts, mise-en-scène (setting, lighting, costumes, actors), sound and genre-expectations lead to a special kind of descriptions of minorities? The aim of this written paper is to find out how a special group of foreigners, the Pakistanis, are represented in the movie My beautiful Laundrette. Are there any hints that they are shown as the prejudices of the English in the 80s, especially the young ones, see them? Or does the director take side with the Pakistanis? In order to find out how the movie works, one has to start with its author, Hanif Kureishi. His autobiographical elements contributed much to the narration.

Die von Stephen Frears 1985 verfilmte Geschichte "über einen schwulen Pakistani, der einen Waschsalon betreibt" (Kureishi) hat längst Kultcharakter angenommen. Hanif Kureishi gilt seitdem als einer der wichtigsten multikulturellen Autoren Großbritanniens. Die Themen Rassenkonflikte, Homosexualität, Klassenschranken, soziale Gegensätze, Jugendarbeitslosigkeit und das vom Thatcherismus gepredigte Streben nach wirtschaftlichem Erfolg werden unaufdringlich, charmant, fern jeder Schwarzweißmalerei - innerhalb einer bewegenden Liebesgeschichte - dargestellt.

Omar is a restless young Asian man, caring for his alcoholic father in the hustling London of the mid-1980s. His uncle, a keen Thatcherite, offers Omar an entrepreneurial opportunity to revamp a dingy laundrette, and ambitious Omar rolls up his sleeves, enlisting the assistance of his old school-friend Johnny, who has since fallen in with a gang of neo-fascists. Omar and Johnny soon form an unlikely alliance that leads to business success, as well as other, more intimate surprises.

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Other, grade: 1,7, University of Hannover, language: English, abstract: The movie “My Beautiful Laundrette” based on the Hanif Kureishi’s screenplay and directed by Stephen Frears made its debut in the British cinemas in 1985. It touches on various aspects of conflicts that minorities face. It adheres to sexual identity, class and racial problems by presenting many sorts of emotional bonding and the struggle to find one’s right space in society. My focus will be on the narrative structure and the analysis of the characters’ behaviours and actions, therefore I did not use many secondary sources. I am going to analyse the film by looking at three leitmotifs: “love”, “success” and “cultural rules of behaviour”. These leitmotifs are interrelated and often contradictory, which leads to many conflicts. The family love and support helps Omar achieve great success in his working class situation, which is backed with equal strength by his partner Johnny. Without Johnny he would have been unable to restore the laundrette. His success can also be seen as a result of the Pakistani code of behaviour where it is normal to give a relative a job if there is a chance to do so. However, the conventional rules of behaviour on both sides, Pakistani and British, stand against the relationship between Omar and Johnny and therefore also stand in the way of their success. All the characters present part of a subculture in which they have to strive harder than a middle-class person to be accepted by society. They have to face many boundaries and social problems. “My Beautiful Laundrette” depicts these hard lives without playing on one’s heart strings. It rather illustrates how it is possible to control one’s own fate by making the most of the given situation and refraining from believing stereotypes.
