I just watched this movie at the 2003 Toronto FIlm Festival and I must say I was deeply unsatisfied. It's not that I can't enjoy a good Art Film, but I found that this movie was open to interpretation that it was lacking in actual substance. The initial 30 minutes become so intriguing and are beautifully constructed, but then it seems to run aimlessly for the remainder. I had made conclusions in my head as to what happened. At the end of the screening Ömer Kavur came out and answered questions from the audience, he really didn't have much to say. With every question he seemed to respond with "That had no particular meaning" or "that is your own interpretation, it's always open to interpretation." When finally asked as to what HIS interpretation of the film was, all he said was that it was "the personal pursuit of happiness." which I must say, doesn't take 2 hours to show.
