Great for those who want to see some subculture!
7 December 2004 | by (Istanbul, Turkey) – See all my reviews

Insaat is a fun yet profound film that deals with the "adventures" of two young men who belong to the so called lower class in the Turkish society. The things that make them happy, the things that p**s them off, how they do what they do, their approach to life, the way they talk (including the accent!), their consumption habits, the music they like, everything is exactly as it's supposed to be! In addition to the main actors, the old lady is also doing a fabulous job. I never heard of Ömer Vargý anywhere except for his debut Herþey Çok Güzel Olacak, but apparently he'll be heard pretty soon. This movie is nowhere behind his first one, which was also pretty good. Good to see new directors doing their job so well..

I think comedy should be added to the genre list for this movie though. Because some scenes and the screenplay would be terribly exaggerated for a crime flick. Crime is in for sure, but this movie is also quite amusing without losing the touch of criminal content and its depth in general. I don't think a perfect 10 is too much, and that's what I gave to this movie. But I understand if someone alien to Turkey gives a lower grade, because it's a little culture specific. But still, wherever you are from, you're likely to find Insaat interesting and possibly like it too.
