Disappointment destiny...
17 November 2006 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

To be honest, Zeki Demirkubuz is not my favorite Turkish film-maker. But his masterwork "Masumiyet" was not an easy one to miss. The movie generated a great buzz around the director and the actors (Haluk Bilginer and Derya Alabora). Now Demirkubuz, takes us 15 years back from the day "Masumiyet" started. Now we have the chance to learn the truth behind the story of Bekir and Ugur and Zagor, which was told through Bekir's monologue in "Masumiyet".

Director Demirkubuz, met the lead actor, Ufuk Bayraktar in a café where he was working as a waiter. He is not actually a trained actor, but have played in "Bekleme Odasi". He does his best, and he has been awarded the Jury Special Prize for "Best Actor" but he doesn't fit the role. The female part of the movie is Vildan Atasever and she also doesn't seem to be relaxed and ready for it. It's easy to understand, there was a huge pressure on them, to be playing the younger lives of lead characters of "Masumiyet". Demirkubuz, could have made a better choice here. The dialogs are raw and they just don't flow.

Another negative side is that the movie is supposed to be 15 years before Masumiyet. But, all the programs on the TV (the news, the football games) or excessive usage of cell phones, destroy this feeling of reality. With the addition of insufficient-quality actor-ship, the movie slowly starts to sink...

As a result, yes Kader may not be a bad movie, but it's a great disappointment, especially after Masumiyet. But knowing that the movie was rewarded with the "Best Movie" award at the Golden Orange Film Festival, it seems like its the Turkish movie fans' destiny, to love and adore, each and every movie Zeki Demirkubuz makes...
