In Turkish film "Innocence", Zeki Demirkubuz creates characters who are very strong in their beliefs.
Innocence is a different Turkish film as it does not rely much on a visual style which is found in other Turkish films which have made their mark on international film festival scene. In this film, director Zeki Demirkubuz has filmed the tragic lives of ordinary people who don't have much left in their midst to improve their situation. In cinema, it is often shown that a character X leaves a place Y in order to go to Z. It is Yusuf, a main protagonist who experiences something similar as he is not able to finish his journey. However, he does not feel disappointed as he gets to learn that he has been useful to some people in his life. Innocence starts with a very unusual request made by an innocent man who has been released from prison. It is from that moment that the film creates its impact by depicting how Yusuf's life would change when he is going to come across vulnerable characters from small Turkish towns where life seems to have stopped for good. Lastly, viewers get to learn that Zeki Demirkubuz takes his cinema seriously as his film is a nice tribute to richness of Turkish cinema which is welcomed by this film's different characters when they sit quietly to watch classics of Turkish cinema on television.
