Angelheart a-la-Turca!
2 August 2006 | by gataserSee all my reviews

Well, one has to admit at the beginning that the movie belongs to a minor sub-group of Turkish movies which carry certain noir elements. There are not many such movies by Turkish directors. As a coincidence, I watched it before I watched Angelheart and the similarities were unbelievable for me! A police detective (Kemal) starts to investigate a suicide. A musician is found in his apartment shot at his face (So he has no face. Nor anybody has his photograph). The police believes it is a suicide (He has gunpowder remnants on his hands). Nevertheless, "something" (unlike money as in Angelheart) urges Kemal to investigate the case more deeply. As the impotent, misogynist detective gets deeper in his quest, he faces disturbing events and facts that make life burdensome together with the pressures from the "organization", i.e. a secret sect in the police department. The movie has certain elements of noir at the plot and stylistic levels. The dark city at night is reflected through expressionistic camera angles and lighting, while stairs and other 'symbols' provide the audience with a psychic atmosphere. Finally, the act is not close to the cinematography at all. This movie is worth to see only because it is one of the few Turkish noirs and it has a clear semblance to Angelheart, which I deem as one of the (at least at the philosophical level) best neo-noirs together with Blade Runner dealing so disturbingly with the question of identity.
