a homework film
24 September 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

To watch this film the viewer needs to be active. You cannot seat passively and enjoy. Acting skills are not helping to enjoy but still you wonder how it will end. The viewer get many clues to guess the end. The clues have been created very creatively but there is one what creates misunderstanding. If the viewer is active, all these efforts will not be rewarded. There is a saying that one picture tells more then 1000 words. Well, this film shows 1000 shots to tell 1 word, which is also an art of course. Finally this film contributes to promotion of Turkey by shots of beautiful places. You start to believe that every place in Turkey is the most beautiful place of the world. This film could be a homework film only.
