They did the hardest thing; employing 'public' for leading roles...
24 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

Since I don't have the heart to harshly criticize these small-budget movies (especially if they give social messages with a social content) as well as I cannot eliminate my emotional attachment to them, I won't be harsh on this one either, but I have a few notes...

First of all there is a serious problem of 'accent'. Since they employed the public of Mugla towns as actors and their accent is different than those who speak clear Turkish, and probably they didn't give enough time for actor instructors to train these people in terms of diction etc., while watching the movie Turkish spectators had hard time to clearly understand the dialogs. Even just because of this, many jokes were missed. If this different accent were to be used, the lines had to be spoken more clearly and slowly...

The first half of the movie, due to the fact I explored above, was away from being engrossing. If the story is based on such a social content and such a small interesting event, there had to be included more elements to attach the spectators to the movie and to be gripping.

After watching the movie I told myself "I wish they had reshot the first half all over again" because it's obvious that it took time for actors to get used to their roles, to adaptate themselves to the movie. For example the wife's mimics and gestures during her fights with the ice cream seller in the first 30 minutes were not satisfying. She looked like she was just waiting for her turn to speak, ignoring what her husband was talking about, and she was in a lack of appropriate response in her facial movements; which tore her link to naturalism.

We all know that it's the hardest thing to train kid actors, especially if they have never seen a camera before and all of a sudden they are in a big movie having big parts in it! I must say that they all managed it well! I can't forget the look on Kamil's face and his voice, his perfect toning while he confessed that he stole the ice cream. He really did give the emotion well.

Turan Ozdemir is really very successful, I congratulate him.

However the movie is not capable of being a nominee for Oscar. Even Yuksel Aksu himself was not expecting the movie to make such a big scene in the country. He is surprised with the great attention it obtained. Nevertheless, considering how much labour and how great effort the crew spent for this movie, in addition to the crucial message it gives, we all have to congratulate them and celebrate it's success. The struggle of a very few directors, writers and thinkers in Turkey is deeply worth being proud of.
