Partnership for staying alive.
13 September 2007 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

The one of the very best movie of Tavuz Turgul's cinematography. Istanbul is the stage(iconographic background)all the characters are of warriors for their own existence for some reason.Time and city looses its originality day by day.Only the very best partners can have the same dream which may takes days. Love is so difficult to reach in that stage.I am not pessimistic in that point.Istanbul is becoming for something different from what it was before.True.There also is something new which is good and inspiring. The movie also carries of an important reference which reminds traditional "Gölge Oyunu-Karagöz=two partners arguing all the time for an artificial subject that they discovered for performance" As a revolutionist I do not agree with the idea that the movie says ;no way out to get this capitalistic degradation.
