This movie warms hearts in Nordic cold
2 May 2009 | by (Istanbul) – See all my reviews

Three middle aged men, long time friends, get together in a normally closed Karaoke bar to drink their failed lives away. Secrets are revealed and sometimes discovered and they sing their miseries one by one during Karaoke sessions. The arrival of a lone woman to the bar will facilitate revealing of the final secret.

This is a warm, funny movie, one of the rare films celebrating life as is. As such it has a value of its own. The opening scene sets the tone nicely.

I had seen this film during Istanbul Film Festival and the film received a warm welcome from the audience as well.
