How to make a modest film about death.
8 August 2007 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

This movie is not about the earthquake, it is about death. Yagmur and Durul Brothers are very successful in Kucuk Kiyamet, they project the fears about death and being under wreckage so that it is impossible not to feel the destruction. The story reaches the end smoothly and every piece settles down at the final. The twist in the movie is under covered very successfully.

I also want to add that the directors never claim that Kucuk Kıyamet is a horror film. They say the opposite; it's a psychological film about death.

Başak Köklükaya' s performance is excellent. Cansel Elçin, İlker Aksum and Binnur Kaya are very very good too. All the actors must be proud for their performances, because they added so much to the film.

The art director made a great job too; the catalog "little apocalypse" and all the paintings were wonderful in addition to the general art directing.

Kevin Moore's soundtrack is astonishingly great and fit the mood of the movie. Taylan brothers are very lucky to have him. "Shine" is an excellent choice for the movie and we don't hear too much of it. Everything was in the appropriate dose and amount,there were no place for exaggeration.

This film must be a guideline for other producers and directors for making a perfect but very modest film which is interested only in telling a very good story in the best way they can. This film is even higher the standards of Hollywood films.

Definitely a " must be seen" ; especially the extras on DVD.
