What the doctor orders: where is your crown King Nothing?
26 April 2010 | by (Istanbul, Turkey) – See all my reviews

The first feature film of director Ahmet Boyacioglu, and it is like a glass of cold beer! Congragulations! Such a realistic depiction of characters who are regular-goers of the bar Siyah Beyaz in Ankara. Ahmet delves into the depths of modern souls: five lonely persons who befriended each other in Siyah Beyaz bar. Each has their own taste of sweet nothing! So they have different choices of drinks. Maybe what you drink is important. The director would prefer beer, I know that :) Siyah Beyaz is cool! Ahmet is not in a hurry to deliver messages, he directs the film like someone drinking his beer in a corner of the bar observing the place. The camera-work is nice and natural. The director opens an agnostic hole in the wall! :) Everything works well, visuals and sound, but I think there are problems in acting. But as it is said this much fault could happen to a judge's daughter! I recommend the film. 7 out of 10.
