May be the best romance movie ever
21 April 2012 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

If you think, "Doctor Zhivago" or "Gone With the Wind" is the best romance&drama ever, you have to think again. And this time, before you decide, watch "Alyazmalim".

In this world, you can't be sure of anything. Except a few masterpieces:) And as you may guess, "Alyazmalim" is one of them. So, you can higher your expectations of the movie.

In the modern society, "love" is something common. Everyday people drink coffee, eat pizza, work and love. Yeah, these days love is only a consumption item. You love, spend some time together and then break up. Then you find someone else and love again. Simple huh? I don't believe that, eastern love is more precious, naive and pure than the western. I believe, being "local", living a simple and slower life, makes you a deeper person. And then, may be, you can find out the real meaning of love. So, i look for the love, away from the city.

"Alyazmalim" teaches and makes you remember "real love". It's not related to human flesh. No! It would be real shallow explanation. Love is only about "two souls". It's true that, you "may" need physical beauty at first. But, it's only like a key, opening a door. The door of a magnificent world. Believe me, when you get into that world, you totally forget about the key :) If a man comes from the big city(being Istanbul in the movie) to a little town, he looks for the same cursory life style and worthless physical love. But, he has a different destiny(oh yes. i believe in destiny:). God will teach him the meaning of love, with a simple, cute girl(she is being the "alyazmali-girl with the red scarf-").

I don't want to spoil the movie. So, i am not going to tell the story. But when the movie ends, you'll accept that, everything i said about "Alyazmali" is true. You may cry(don't be ashamed).

PS: If you read that review and watch the movie, and of course if you like it, don't think that Turkish movie history has only 1 big shot. I can say that, there are at least 20 films which, after you watch, you would give 10 over 10 on IMDb.
