a movie with a universal message
13 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I see only 2 reviews posted for this wonderful film. I'm an American from a suburb north of New York City. I am non-religious though raised Catholic, so it was interesting to me to see a close up shot of the prayer beads used in the Muslim service. The Rosary beads we used to pray when I was in church are very similar to the ones used by Muslims.

The movie itself is very low key & slow moving & shows how much we share in common as human beings trying to make through each day. The man-made barriers of religion are just an obstacle which only make life more difficult for us.

The universal message of loneliness and yearning for companionship is clearly the main storyline here. Nadir Saribacak as Musa, the Iman seeking love and Gorkem Yeltan as Clara, the Catholic neighbor are both excellent in their respective lead roles. They are very natural & the script is not over-written with meaningless dialog. The writers let the actor's faces tell most of the story.

I felt that the film was very realistic from beginning to end & I highly recommend it.
