Storyline

The sailors who were duped by woman sellers, want to steal their capitals to retaliate from them. There are four men and one woman in a ruined boat. Four lazy and dissatisfaction sailors. The woman represent lust, delectation and appalling potential enemy. The men know each other but woman is unknown. Four of them know the responsibility of life. The woman is dangerous with her chastity and her depressed wishes and she represent a chick who gets men's life into trouble. Four men signpost themselves with a breathtaking game, with their decrepitude and modesty, sometimes with their depressed and additive beauty in a closed location. And none of them can not get off without a loss. Written by omayra73@yahoo.com

An extreme from the "Green Pine"
2 December 2002 | by (Istanbul, Turkey) – See all my reviews



First of all, Green Pine (Yeþilçam) is what Turkish cinema sector is referred to in Turkey. Like Hollywood of the U.S. Yeþilçam is actually the name of a street in Istanbul where actors and actresses used to hang out.

About the movie, it's an extreme example of Turkish cinema. The language it uses somewhat loses its strength when translated, but it's still interesting as far as its style is concerned. It has some grotesque scenes, and slightly exaggerated street language. The casting is absolutely awesome, and the story is not too much exaggerated except for the kidnapped girl being a virgin at that age. It reflects some aspects of the life in Turkey, but mostly the darker stuff. It does make the viewer feel like he's actually spent time with those people on board. It will probably be shown in Istanbul International Film Festival for a few more years, so follow. Very good for those who are bored of American movies which feel like buns baked in the same bakery.
