I can't say I fell in love with this movie, but it's different for sure. I saw Tabutta Rövaþata by the same director, and without knowing who directed this one, I could tell the same hands made both movies. That's kind of lame.. Derviþ Zaim, the director, reminds me a little bit of Tom Tykwer in not trying to make anything different. Tykwer, however, is very successful, and Zaim needs to criticize himself a little bit. He is trying to be extreme, outstanding, unique, and stuff like that.. That, he achieves. But his movies are not exactly as good as he'd like them to be. Filler Ve Çimen is certainly a billion times better than Tabutta Rövaþata, but still not excellent. A little less exaggeration could have made it a better movie.. Notwithstanding these facts, it's still worth watching. You might not love it, but you won't be bored either. Recommended..
