A decent watch
1 December 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at the International Film Festival of India, 2012. The movie is about a young girl who travels to Istanbul to honor her father's last wishes and bury him there, after he'd fled to Paris following the revolution in the 80's. The movie is about how she struggles to bury him because he's not a citizen of Turkey.

Running close to 90 minutes, the film is a breezy watch as it follows Ozgur as she goes from Paris to Istanbul and tries to salvage all remaining sources and connections that could help her.

The movie is watchable because of it's decent performances. Ozgur's solitude is shown very well, both by the actor and the director, and the viewer can easily connect with the protagonist. The story, however, could have been treated in a better manner and could have been brisker.

In all, the film is a decent watch. It is not a bad film but not extraordinary either.
