Aylin establishing her worth
16 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

If a movie can make or break an actor, this movie should prove that Aylin is at the top of her game. The actress that most might know from Almanya, shows that she can do much more than comedy. It's a tour or a ride or whatever you want to call it. And while she was able to shine in an ensemble movie too ("3 Zimmer, Küche Bad"), this is her baby right here (no pun intended).

Animal lovers might have an issue here and there, but the movie is defined by other things of course. Relationships between friends and strangers get explored, an interesting look into human psyche and how deep and far things can be taken. A philosophical aspect can be attached to the movie too. There is a reason for that title. If I were to judge just the performance it would've been at least a 9/10, but the movie itself leaves a few things/strands without resolution (which is life like and had to be done running time wise I'm sure), some decisions seem far stretched too. Still the ending almost makes up for all the (little) flaws.
