Storyline

Musa, who works as a bookkeeper in the customs office, believes in the emptiness and absurdity of life. He doesn't struggle to change his life; he lets himself flow along with events because he thinks that it all leads to the same end. The death of his mother doesn't affect him. Although he loves her, her death makes him joyful. In order to avoid making any decisions he marries a girl whom he doesn't like, because she wants it. Whereas in his world, people deal with their fate by their own will and power. Musa is arrested for the death of a mother and her two kids. However, he doesn't react to this event either...

Parable on the matter of human morals and free will
21 September 2002 | by m_mckechneaySee all my reviews

This film is part of Demirkubuz' trilogy "Tales about Darkness'. Loosely based on Albert Camus' novel "The Stranger" it shows the life of a young man as a chain of decisions to be made. How should he react as he discovers the death of his mother? What should he do when a colleague shows her love for him? The hero though decides to do nothing. "I don't care", is his basic answer. "The world sucks", he once declares, his face void of expression.

Although it sometimes over-strains its metaphors (like the TV as modern substitute for human communication and harmonious family-life), this is the most ambiguous, and therefore most impressing work of Demirkubuz so far.
