who plays the beautiful music in Anlat Istanbul?
30 May 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I recently saw this movie in Amsterdam. I loved it, the colors, the images and the music!! Could anyone give me a clue to the music? Who played this wonderful music? The movie content was artistic and original, i did not get bored, maybe the scene with the disturbed woman in the big villa alongside the Bosphorus was a bit too long, here and there things were a little bit like a repetition but i did not mind. I loved it. It was surprising. Especially the PASJA was a great player, I laughed! In general I must say that the men were not very sympathetic, they were rather violent and dominant...I' d like to have seen some more Turkish men playing a gentle and emancipated role of equivalents to women. On the other hand this was a story about extremities and realities that go beyond the ordinary dull average housekeeping, so let it be. If you read this and if you can help, please Please send me the name of the music in Anlat Istanbul, so I can buy it somewhere, it was beautiful! Thank you!
