A nice surprise of "Yeni Sinemacilar"
14 December 2000 | by (istanbul) – See all my reviews

"Yeni Sinemacilar" is maybe the first Turkish independent film makers. The first movie of Yeni Sinemacilar was "Gemide / On Board" and was really a shock for Turkey. On Board was also directed by Serdar Akar and written by Onder Cakar.

"Laleli'de Bir Azize", the second movie of Yeni Sinemacilar (directed by Kudret Sabanci) was a little bit "confused-story", but on the shocking wave of "On Board" again. Both stories about drugs, prostitutes, pimps,murderers e.t.c.

After 2 years, they come up with a new film: "Dar Alanda Kisa Paslasmalar" A film about love, football and the early 80's in Turkey.

A nice dramatic story of an amateur football team in the early 80's in Turkey. Also it's like it's first words says: "Life is like football."
