Don't watch it without a roll of tissue paper on your side
24 March 2015 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

I feel like I cannot appreciate this film enough, since I usually don't watch movies with some 'feel' in it. The story was beautifully told alongside with a truckload of tears and laughter, too. Turkey's cultures and people never ceased to amaze me, and that was why Mucize and other Mahsun Kirmizigul's works become on top of my favorite Turkish films. It is not surprising that I really admired Mert Turak's (Aziz) acting since it was so natural, yet dragged us to his world and forced us to know him much more than the villagers did. The plot may be a little flat, but it was really hard for me to pause for a while for a bathroom break. Kirmizigul really did a nice job here. The film taught us all not to simply ignore mentally-retarded people around us, nor to give them our pity. And it also taught us how hurtful some people's commentary can be. I did not notice it before until this film showed how painful it is to be living with prejudice. Like its title, Mucize (Miracle), really was a miracle, at least to me. I recommend this film not only for you to watch with friends and colleagues, but also with your families and classroom students.
