Funny and poignant
2 February 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The film is funny because it's true; this is very much how these relationships work. I read most of the other comments about this film and what I saw was just sour comments coming from people who most likely have got no idea about how these things go. I've seen things like this happen around me in Istanbul over and over again between foreigners and poor Kurds who are simply looking for a way out of their poverty and who would do ANYTHING to get a residency for the EU or US.

What really horrified me was the dismissal of the 'Bulgarian' acts in the film because they are actually very important. They show us how Daniel has gotten himself in an emotional pit where he accepts that his 'lover' has a wife and a life of which he is no part. He even goes as far as rejecting the nephew of Kyril, who is offered to him on a platter and who very obviously sexually arouses him, because he's committed to a man who only sees him as a convenience.
