Water, Fights, Rivalry - What Else Could Viewers Wish For?
Metin Erksan's melodrama contains familiar ingredients - the passive heroine (Belgin Doruk), the clean-cut hero (Tamer Yigit) and the bad guy (Ekrem Bora). Set in and around the sea, it is another tale of love, deceit and rapacity characteristic of Yesilcam. There are plenty of fight sequences, even though the sound of fist hitting chin is not quite in sync with the on screen action. There is also fake blood that appears on the face of one of the combatants, even though it did not seem to be there before. However the film has mote than its fair share of entertaining moments - the sequence of rapid close-ups between the three protagonists sets the mood for the beginning and end of each sequence; the music - often dramatic at times - sets the scene; and the beach-party atmosphere, evoked with a decorum quite foreign to the American equivalent, is redolent of a time long passed. Definitely one of the nostalgia freak.
