Golden Age of Stars lapsed into reverie
4 August 2013 | by CihanVercanSee all my reviews

Remember the times when movies are made with stars. Remember the times when there is no story to tell, if there is no star to play it. It feels so sad that oldies are archaic. Like a golden statuette, you can't be part of its drama any more, no matter how close you look you hold and you feel it.

Three Friends is one of those oldies which belong to bygone days, when the movies were only following one side of a story, very straightforwardly. You'd easily know who the protagonist and antagonist are. But you can never see a scene where protagonist is not present. There is no other story happening in the background with side characters or with the antagonist. There is only one plot, but with many different themes that is enriched: Heroic themes, love themes, friendship, innocence. It's fully a drama.

Because there has been a revision in 1971 of the same movie played by different actors, shot by the same director onto the same script, you can easily tell how the modern cinema has evolved by time. Particularly this is a story of three poor friends who are helping out a blind vagabond girl by sharing their food and home with her. In the similar setting of Charlie Chaplin's City Lights with lots of inspirations from the Tokyo Story and Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai, Three Friends is a highly emotional social drama which focus is on friendship and innocence. Highly recommended for all lovers of classic drama movies.
