Milestone in Turkish film history
1 January 2007 | by serenadesSee all my reviews

I found the users' comments very unrealistic with no solid explanation. I tried to find their other comments or votes for films in order to understand their taste but for some reason IMDb says, the users don't exist. I found the users' comments very unrealistic. They are not criticizing they are judging the film in a subjective way. First of all, this movie has been nominated for 3 awards in SIYAD. The nominees are decided by selected film critics and writers.

How come this film can be so bad that even the previous examples of Turkish horror films can be better than Kucuk Kiyamet? Are you serious for God's sake???? Because according to your comments this film is the worst. I understand if you don't like it compared to the movies that are made in other countries which are better in this genre however I've never watched a better film that it is made in Turkey within this genre.

This film can be considered both as a film that is made just for entertaining and also can be considered both as philosophical. A rare combination, hard to find not only in Turkey, but also in all around the world. I loved the acting, can compete with worldwide actors, very subtle (other than a few scenes), there is no over acting as opposed to many other Turkish films. The film doesn't push you to the limits to cry, which is something Turkish audience is not used to and good drama quality with some thriller sauce. It can be slightly considered as horror as well. It's totally a new style in Turkish Cinema and the hints of an upcoming era. Below I will mention about this theory more. I loved the music; I barely see this kind of a "CINEMA" soundtrack quality. Most soundtracks sound like student films to me here in Turkey. Kucuk Kiyamet is one of the rare ones.

As to me, in order to find our style in film-making as Turkish cinema, first we need to take care of all the technical aspects. Taylan Biraderler have been practicing and doing their homework for a while now. I could easily see their development step by step. In this film I see something unique. It's not Hollywood, it's not Asian, it's Turkish. I can totally see the Turkish mood in the movie. I can understand the confusion on people's mind, because the importance of this film will be understood later in the future, just like any important "movement" in art, literature or cinema. The ones who are educated in "literary art movements" they will understand what I mean here.

Usually people can put a finger on a movement after it develops in time. For instance scholars don't say "today post-modern era starts", the era starts and after a while, upon observing the changes in literature, art, etc. they decide there is a change in the movement and they give it a name. So I believe in the future, this movie will be mentioned in school books at cinema schools, just like "Eskiya" or "Istanbul Kanatlarimin Altinda" or "GORA". These are also movies which started a new era in Turkish Film history.

I can also see the technical problems in the film however as someone who worked on both film sets (Turkey and Hollywood), I totally appreciate the directors for accomplishing this. Because I experienced how hard it is for Turkish directors to work on film sets. There is no organization, there is no system and most of the people don't know what they are doing. They usually have to work with whatever that have in hand. I don't know how this film set was, but I am sure they were exploring and trying to find ways to make it happen as opposed to Hollywood where you can work easily since they were "been there, done that!"

Regardless of you like it or not, I recommend you to watch it! One day this movie will be appreciated more than it is now even for the ones who don't like it.
