Let There Be Light
11 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let There Be Light or in Turkish, Isiklar sonmesin is a movie of reaching an understanding point between two people. The movie opens with a candle flickering in the wind and then two pairs of hands come out and save the candle from going out. This scene is the rest if the movie. You'll see throughout the movie fire and light in many forms that ultimately bring Seydo and Murat together. The plot is simple enough, Captain Murat is sent out to stop the Kurdish resistance from crossing the border. Once the Turkish army catches up with the Kurdish resistance though an antsy Turkish soldier fires against orders. During the fight an avalanche occurs killing just about everyone, but Seydo, Murat and Zozan. Because there is a blizzard approaching the three end up sharing shelter and fire. They begin to be able to tolerate each other though Zozan and Seydo are planning to lose Murat. After another night in a cave together Seydo carries Zozan out and leaves Murat. When Murat catches up with them a life changing event happens. After the event they carry on to the nearby village, though Seydo tries to lose Murat again. Once in the village Seydo starts a fire and then Murat shows up. They fight only to be broken up by an old man who has stayed in the village. The man informs them that "they" burned the village but that he is staying for "something life can begin again." The old man then goes on to say he has to light the fires and lamps running outside to demonstrate his efforts. As the old man was talking a group of Turkish solders had been advancing on the village. The solders begin to fire upon the village after the old man exits. At this point a little girl, Dilan, comes running out of the hut, followed closely by Murat and Seydo, the two grab her and lift her up. This is the ending scene. The two men who had been fighting holding the future of Turkish and Kusdish relations and keeping it safe. Overall Isiklar sonmesin is an extremely touching movie that all people who are studying Turkish film should watch. Just watch out for bad subtitling as the disturbers did a very poor job.
