A movie made for payers' tastes.
28 July 2007 | by bilendoganSee all my reviews

Every year many art-house movie projects in Turkey are in search of sponsors. Often the political motivations determine where the sponsor should invest. This is one such example. It has been sponsored by EU just because it criticizes the the Turkish history.

This could be OK, unless you know how badly it has been executed and at the cost of which other projects, then you feel bad. In the same year this movie got the EU money, there were a couple of scenarios by some independent young directors. I found one especially about the life in a Eastern Turkey village, event evolving around the theme of struggle of local Kurdish people with the local feudal system was a star. It has been wasted because of Ustaoglu's "supply for the market demand" approach (here the market is EU, as opposed to viewers, unfortunately).

The only good thing about this movie are some shot on misty mountains. Otherwise it is a dry, uncreative execution of "voice of the master" concept.
