Hidden Gem, 7 June 2011
Author: princebansal1982 from India

Mutluluk is an amazing movie. It is story of two countries. Rural Turkey which is still clinging to its old ways and traditions and Modern Turkey which is developed and educated and see the traditions as outdated. I guess it is the same for any big developing country.

The contrast between the two Turkeys is huge and I think stressed upon visually also in the movie. The acting was just amazing and the characters are given time to develop. The plot itself is heartbreaking and fascinating from the viewpoint of an outsider.

But beyond the dramatic payoff, what I couldn't believe was that how slick this movie was. Cinematography is dazzling and not even a single shot is wasted. Background score is very distinct and powerful but it never overpowers the narrative. It was so well made in technical department that I couldn't really believe that it was a Turkish film. Well, maybe it is my ignorance of Turkish cinema. I would definitely be checking more Turkish films from now on.
