Storyline

Eflatun is a master miniature artist who's living in 17th century Istanbul. One day, he's taken to the vizier's mansion by force. There he learns that Danyal, one of the Ottoman princes who has ignited an insurrection, is arrested in a far off state and to be executed soon. Eflatun is ordered to make a portrait of the rebel prince who's been condemned to death in a Western manner to help the authorities be certain on the identity of him. Upon the order, Eflatun sets off for an arduous journey to Anatolia. He picks up a girl named Leyla en route. Together, they find themselves in a great venture fraught with sensations.

Turkish cinema with a backbone...
21 December 2006 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

Dervis Zaim, is an intelligent Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus born director who has been doing some very important films without any great notice. His first feature "Tabutta Rovasata" was highly rewarded in international festivals, then the "Filler ve Cimen" was a brave attempt to criticise one of the most politically embarrassing scandals in Turkish history.

In Filler ve Cimen, Zaim had used the tile art of old Turkish tradition and now with Cenneti Beklerken, he has the art of miniature at the center of his plot. He says that this is for a reason: "To be able to have a cinema with a backbone, Turkish movies has to feed from the traditional arts of its history, tradition." Well, this is not Dervis Zaim at his best, the story is not very inspiring, has some flaw problems but the miniature animations are perfect. The film is technically surprising (except some 2D backgrounds). Actors are more than acceptable maybe except young Melisa Sozen.

All in all, Cenneti Beklerken is a must for anyone who wonders what Turkish cinema in 21st century is about. Zaim, is one of the most important Turkish film-makers around. He has the ability and heart to show that Turkish culture HAS a "Great Tradition" and he has the "Individual Talent" necessary...
