Oo sweet childhood, where art thou?
25 March 2010 | by (Istanbul, Turkey) – See all my reviews

They say the first is from your heart, be it a book, or be it a film. This beautiful film Atalay Tasdiken's debut, will catch you directly from your heart, and it will leave you with a sweet and bitter taste paradoxically. Like time itself. The past was once, we were kids once. But no longer. The film depicts the holding/together of two siblings, one boy and one girl. The elder brother is taking care of his little sister. Their father married to another woman doesn't care about them. Their grandfather is desperate and helpless as he cannot take care of them properly. The boy's strong stance in the face of everything that hurts and comes over them is heroic. Too human, too minimal in a small corner of the world in Turkey, Konya in a village. But if you see the film it is going to open the doors of universal human condition before your eyes into your heart. It is pure poetry and the visuals are stunning and without exaggeration. Just see the film, and remember that once we were kids, that we had unconditional love for our brothers or sisters, that we are fragile! Mommo is one of those films with magic touch and sense of masterful simplicity! Listen to the music of simple and bare life. Sad but sweet! Enjoy it...
