intimate movie about ordinary people
1 January 2007 | by purple_lizardSee all my reviews

well, i usually don't like those kind of local movies and the use of amateur actors but "ice cream, i scream" is very real and you can feel the intimacy. The movie talks about universal matters around a very small story and it is very obvious that the director is reflecting his memories not his observations which lets you dive into the life of the city "Mugla" - and Aegean culture. It also deals with capitalism-socialism and the religious matters in a light,funny way. The war of the local ice-cream salesman reminds me the war of "Don Quijote" against the windmills except that they are not imaginary rivals anymore but real,huge firms of capitalism.
