good overall
30 January 2009 | by yldzyldzSee all my reviews

First of all, as in the other movie of Giritlioglu "Salkım Hanımın Taneleri", this movie's focus was balanced between the life of the main character Behcet and the historical events of 6-7 September 1955. When I first saw the trailer, I thought that the movie was going to be as good as the Turkish series "Hatırla Sevgili" which included more elements of history. But Guz Sancisi has a more micro focus and it shows the effects of the events on Behcet's life. A macro focus with a more detailed history would have been more interesting. Well someone could argue that this is the function of documentary. However I think that this kind of movies should not be shading the history element by using the love element. And the character Behcet seemed to me, that it was taken from another movie: his weakness, his obedience, his incapability to save his friends... Anyway, I had dreamed of more of the subject

About the performance of the actors, I would like to say that it was very good. Turkish actors and actresses successfully performs their characters. I congratulate them for such a nice show. And the screening was beautiful, the streets of Pera were amazing. The sound might have been better, I quite didn't understand what Elena said until the end of her sentence when she was speaking to Behcet. Anyway, overall the movie deserves a nice 7:)
