On the first day of Ramadan, Hasan arrives at a railway station in the middle of the Anatolian wilderness. He has with him a young wife and a young daughter. He has heard that the small station community needs an imam to lead the prayer ritual and teach the children Koran during the holy month. Before too long, realizing how aloof he is with his wife and daughter and through a series of events, the townspeople decide that for all his impassioned preaching, his mellifluous calls to prayer and committed worship, Hasan is essentially a cruel and heartless man and they start to develop an almost hostile attitude towards the imam. Written by
An imam comes to a small village in the western part of Turkey with his wife and daughter. The residents of the village -mostly train station workers- hire the imam for the holly month of Ramadan. The story tells how the small community of the village intervene with the imam's life through first by gossiping among themselves and then by direct involvement. The story also tells the heart-warming friendship of Adem
one of the worker's 6-7 years son - and Imam's daughter. This is one
of the best village-based Turkish movie that I have seen (out of 6-7 movies). The acting of the children are superb, the others also act satisfactorily. The directing and the scenario are also strong.
This movie is one of the recent Turkish - village movies. Unfortunately, most of these movies take the religion aspect at the center, probably as a pre-condition of getting subsidy from Turkish Cultural Ministry. I would give this movie an 8 in isolation. However, the political(non-secular) impact on Turkish movies disturbs me and I subtract 1 because of that.
