Remarkable
3 March 2001 | by (Istanbul, Turkey) – See all my reviews

From the very beginning to the end, this movie maintains a rhythm that never falls short. The story is familiar to those living in Turkey, and it's masterfully balanced with a character drama, though unable to elaborate on neither because of too many characters and story details. But it's a rare success for the Turkish cinema, whose films so far were usually made to "amuse the crowd" or to emphasize the overlooked poor peasant life in the East. Filler ve Cimen also has an insight on many social and political issues; but what makes it a success is the uneasy way it tells the story (contrary to the common failure in Turkish films). The symbols are meaningful and offer a whole new perspective, but they were too very obvious to make sure they're understood. But anyway, it's a good movie, one of the best of the Turkish movies ever..
