I Have My Reasons
27 April 2010 | by (Istanbul, Turkey) – See all my reviews

I guess I have to express that I've been long waiting for this movie to come out with sole excitement but all I've been feeling since the end movie is soler disappointment.

The movie shows what a debut-movie maker should and shouldn't do (and he gets caught in traps almost all the debut-making movie makers have been falling in). This had to be a great movie. This had to be great because you got all the elements one need to make a splendid movie. You could dig further and further and explore what religion really is in its very core, its dilemma (both on society and person), the goods and bads of both religions and how they look at each other at what points and struggle the girl and man throughout all these complications.

But this movie offers non of these.

What this movie offers is unnecessary jokes in unnecessary scenes, a shallow love story and nothing deep. There isn't even any psychoanalytical resolutions both in the process and in the end! Besides all this, it isn't even making you feel the way the name of the movie expresses. You don't feel that "distance" it had to be between characters and situations.
