Storyline

The peaceful cohabitation of bachelors Ender and Cetin is disrupted when they allow a friend's sister to move in with them. The 30-something longtime friends are overwhelmed by the presence of the uncommunicative Nihal. What possessed them to accept the responsibility of a university student in their home? Especially a girl struggling with the trauma of recently losing her parents in a car accident. But simple daily rituals like sharing meals eventually bring the three roommates together for more pleasant moments. Nihal soon comes out of her depressed shell and the two men discover a vibrant beautiful young woman. Always caring and protective gentlemen, Ender and Cetin are intent on being conscientious guardians. Nihal enjoys discussing literature and poetry with scholarly Ender, and she finds comfort in boisterous Cetin's earthy humor. Nihal is touched by the men's loyal friendship: in a sort of bromance since high school, Ender and Cetin now seem like an old married couple... Before... Written by anonymous

Dilemma
3 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

I watched this at the Berlin International Film Festival and was pleasantly surprised how good it felt. Not like a feel good movie (it is drama), but how nicely it was played and written. While it is easy to see the attraction to our main female character, it is another thing to play that convincing. While it may not be without clichés, it still holds its own.

It's the old stranger comes into town (or home or whatever you wanna call it) and of course things start to change. Chemistry is important here, because it is basically people talking and interacting. Sometimes it might only be a look or gesture. But it never gets boring (if you like dramas that is).
