smart, beautiful, touching film. not only for story itself but for inspired manner to use different cultural pieces for a precise puzzle. humor, cultural impact, the family relationship, the identity of a foreign community and its circles. and , sure, the love story. after many homosexual movies, its basic virtue is its special freshness. not a lesson, not a speech about sexual minority rights. only a correct exercise about choice and tradition. and about the impact between worlds. last scene is splendid. and the Turkish bath scenes - full of delicate poetry. amusing, bitter, realistic. a good film. and little more.
