A Black Comedy in honor of Arsène Lupin, the World's Quickest Rogue
3 September 2009 | by CihanVercanSee all my reviews

Though not included in the blue-collar/white-collar employee segregate, the life of lower class people -which does not mean they are poor- is told in Sevimli Hirsiz "Lovely Rogue" within a very pleasant approach. Together with Nil Unal, Kemal Sunal and Bulent Kayabas forms a love trio. After Devlet Kusu(1980) Sunal and Kayabas reunions for a rivalry to win Nil Unal over.

In their tiny world of misfeasance, bohemians live for easy-money. They make a killing from robbery, rouser, counterfeiting, black marketing, playing dirty tricks, smoke and mirrors. Our hero Kemal Sunal, using his real-life name in the movie: "Kemal" who used to be an honest but poor man enters into this dangerous but amusing world pursuing a beautiful and dangerous girl. He falls for such a girl who steals his wallet. At the final scene remarkably, when she falls for her, this time he steals her bra. That was one unforgettably funny ending ever in such a black comedy.

At the beginning Kemal was only a rookie, a johnny-come-lately. It's very entertaining how Nil Unal trains Kemal to become as quick as Arsene Lupin. At first Kemal doesn't show his hidden talent for being a rogue. Those scenes of training for rogue-class were legendary as well as the signs of growing love between them. Formed a lovely couple, sweethearts Sunal and Unal gave very talented performances. Sexy and cheerfully acted Nil Unal has gained very positive critics. This was one of her best screen appearances.

Kartal Tibet leads and directs Kemal Sunal for best of all the other directors. The good company togetherness between Tibet and Sunal is clearly visible in the movie "Sabaniye(1984)" too.
