On the first day of Ramadan, Hasan arrives at a railway station in the middle of the Anatolian wilderness. He has with him a young wife and a young daughter. He has heard that the small station community needs an imam to lead the prayer ritual and teach the children Koran during the holy month. Before too long, realizing how aloof he is with his wife and daughter and through a series of events, the townspeople decide that for all his impassioned preaching, his mellifluous calls to prayer and committed worship, Hasan is essentially a cruel and heartless man and they start to develop an almost hostile attitude towards the imam.Written by
I really enjoyed this movie. I was quite taken by the scenery, the amazing photo and the skill among the actors. Nurgül Yeşilçay was stunning in her performance as Hacer, and I can't wait to see more of her in the future. This is truly a feel-good-movie, and it was nice to see something southern European/Middle Eastern for a change. It's too bad that their film-making seems to be very underestimated, I'm sure people would change their point of view if they were to lay hands on this precious Turkish artwork. Thumbs up for the children's performances (especially Adam), but I'd watch it over and over again for Nurgül's appearance only. She did a great job in the Turkish/German movie "Auf Der Anderen Seite" last year, so I wasn't surprised to see her doing an equally good job in "Adem'in Trenleri".
