Yesim Ustaoglu manages to tell a sad story of past history where people are forced to loose their identities. Eleni which has lived her whole life with the name of Ayse, with an older lady who took care of her when she is left behind during a mass immigration, gets back in touch with her real identity, her real language. Her silence, cries out her loss of identity. The story is beautifully told through the eyes of a child, with beautiful pictures and landscape. The misty mountains accompany the misty pictures of the past. Yesim Ustaoglu is a very strong director who chooses good actors and gets good results. She deserves better recognition, which, I believe, will come through the years.
