Every second counts when you're protecting your beloved one.
5 September 2013 | by (Somewhere in the Cosmos) – See all my reviews

One of the best children's movie alongside hundreds of them I loved. Most of you are already could have seen Majid Majidi's 'Children of Heaven' and 'Children of Invention', this movie was kinda close to these two titles in brother-sister combo. Yes it was about two kids whose mother died very recently and their father got remarried to another woman who has a boy in the same age. Now these kids live in their old and widowed Grandfather's house who has been unable to protect them forever. So they should protect each others from outside world evil especially the elder one should take more responsibility.

The kids were cute, their performances were magnificent, to see their struggle will make us intolerable by our tendered heart. There were no any complicated story, it was very simple like daily life stuff that used to happen in a small place like this. The country was kinda dry but beautiful, it was all camera magic, the places were utilised very wisely for the story.

This movie might tell about two Turkish kids but there's no difference in the struggle in life for little kids whose parents are not there for them when they needed it badly. In other parts of the world even in improved countries, theirs remote places like this movie kids are suffering from the same issue. I had seen some of Turkish movies and this one was one of the best from them. A must see movie and highly recommended.

9½/10
