Sometimes life is too difficult to carry on
14 December 2002 | by (Ankara, Turkey) – See all my reviews

It is difficult even for a dervish who should think much about the meaning of life. In Ottoman Empire in the 19th century no human right was to be argued. It was possible for the ones who dare, who cheat or did intrigued. But in the real life we also have roles. We play a good character or a bad character. A good man can only play good man successfully. If one tries the opposite it is much more possible to be the loser. In dark tones and dark colours among dust film flows very slowly to one good man's bad fate. The film is very successfully cinematographed and screenplay is a very good adoption of the original book Dervish and the Death. Most of the Turkish actors are of theather origin and good at the mimics and gestures needed in close plan. You think and feel bad at the end of the film which mostly make a film of European origin successfull.
