A film which works well as a serious document of human dignity.
This is a great film in which the depicted events need a lot of patience to be followed,understood and put in mind.Although the film has some historical background,a person with true human heart can easily follow this film contrary to the belief that some elements about history must be read before watching a film with historical context.Yesim Ustaoglu has shot her film through the eyes of a small boy who is growing in a Turkey under conflict.There are some wise old women too around him who also have a great screen presence.The humor of the film is very limited and comes in the form of the observations made by the young boy.The photography by the renowned Polish cinematographer Jacek Petrycki is stupendous and every effort has been made by him to capture the beauty of the rural landscape. Waiting for the clouds is also a film about the search for identity as history forces people to question what they have been,why they are, what are going to be ? All in all, a very good slow moving film worthy of being appreciated with family members.
