A Powerful Film which Loses the Plot
3 November 2009 | by cgyfordSee all my reviews

Turkish filmmaker Abdullah Oguz adapts the Zulfu Livaneli ("Iron Earth, Copper Sky", "Mist" & "Shahmaran") novel of the same title into a powerful movie that won prizes at the 2008 Turkish Film Festival in Nuremberg, the 2008 Miami International Film Festival and the 2007 Prix Odyssee Human Rights Award from the European Council.

The ephemeral Ozgu Namal puts in a powerfully nuanced performance as the young girl raped and them condemned to death by honour killing whilst Murat Han is uneasy as her star-crossed lover ordered to perform the act, and Talat Bulut curiously out of place as the Professor bored of his own storyline, who joins theirs.

The director creates a moving first act as the almost silent Namal is condemned by all around her in an act of barbarity still far to common in modern Turkey but when Bulunt insinuates himself into the plot things turn into a second rate remake of "Knife in the Water" and lead to an all to predictable denouement.

People can be young and old, but not the wind!
