Block C is a drama on modern city life. The film takes place in tall and lonely apartments of Istanbul but it is in-fact universal in reflecting loneliness of modern man. The film is a perfect sample of Demirkubuz's atmosphere creation and describes detailed personalities on the screen. The cinematography is one of the best in Turkish movie history. I believe the quality of this independent film has rarely been achieved by other commercial films.
