Nothing can be the same
5 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Every moment that we haven't seen, heard, touched or smelled before will start to reverberate in us in a very different way and take another form once we experience it. In Araf, I tried to touch upon those fleeting moments and feelings that can occur." – Yeşim Ustaoğlu

In a disintegrating town midway between Istanbul and Ankara, two teenagers search for something better. A girl (in a luminous performance by Neslihan Atagül) starts to pursue the desire awakening in her body while the boy-next-door hopes that a TV show will change his life.

Molten slag breaks forth. A windshield wiper does not stop rain. And nothing can be the same.
