A Noteworthy Black Film
3 March 2007 | by ufuk_eltemSee all my reviews

The film is unexpectedly surprising and shocking. I believe this is an important film and will be given more importance in time.

Story is developed around a police detective (Musa Rami) destructing himself and his family. He lives platonic love with a university student who is making interview with him for her thesis. He looses all beloved people and colleagues around and finally himself too.

In the story one shock is coming after other and another from beginning till end. The rapid developments of such shocking scenes are creating knock-down effect on the spectators. The main character, conservative and heroic Police Detective Musa Rami is living big dilemma from life to death, from loosing his family to fall in love in a very short time period like two mounts. The tragedy is not ending until he looses every thing. With this main character, Haluk Bilginer is again proving his proficiency as an unforgettable profile. And Ozgu Namal is nearly catching up his performance. We do not see such black films in Turkish Cinema frequently. Therefore I believe this film will be remembered as a milestone in the future.

While the film has a high artistic but clip style approach to the subject, it also referring to many famous and contemporary film in different scenes. As much as I could catch these are, Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Blue, Fame, Danko, Matrix. Especially after loosing whole family, the scene with music of Blue and blue painting stain in the background wall is so impressive for the movie addicts. Two critics: the music is sometimes not compatible with scenes, and some players were appeared as weak where Haluk Bilginer exists.

Congratulations to the creators of such authentic and successful film.
