Cuban Turco - Che Passa?
5 October 2005 | by Mizz_dynamiteeSee all my reviews

A good innovative piece of work from Turkish Cinema.. A film with the usual Turkish punch lines and sexually frustrated humour..

I believe that this is a good move towards a new generation of cinema production within the country that is diverted not only geographically but socially between the western and eastern elements of humanity..

Sans Kapiyi Kirinca - is a great example of good artistic and aesthetic cinema with a positive feel.. A simple laugh for 90 mins..

Talented cast such as Ferhan Sensoy - Tamer Karadagli and the master himself Sinan Cetin (Sinan needs to be pushed into the international category as that obviously where he belongs/ Turkish cinema needs a lot more time and nurturing before it could even be considered into Sinan's league.)

In a whole, a good laugh, excellent picture and amazing soundtrack.. This piece is for the audience similar to myself who are pessimistic over Turkish Cinema and have strong opinions about the culture and for those who want to see a Latin-Turkic mixture of Language and sociology.
