Broken Angel Heartbroken
7 September 2008 | by katznkitzSee all my reviews

We are already forewarned by the title and the blurb on the movie that there is a dark side to this story. The film is somehow reminiscent of "the needle and the damage done" kind of flicks from the 70s. Good directing, super camera and cinematography, creative editing, very effective acting, the script and everything else is excellent by any standard. But........??? All that toil and accomplishment is near enough wasted because of the subject matter; "Bad things can happen, in foreign big cities, to a naive & young student/immigrant woman; even from a half way westernized Mediterranean country". Wow, how interesting, enlightening and entertaining at the same time. We were not necessarily expecting any excitement, maybe some drama; which the film delivers all right. Or all wrong, depends on how one looks at it. So once again the premise of "bad news sells" is played out, this time with a dose of mistaken artfulness. Find something beautiful deface and destroy it, is the name of the game for some who are short on direction in life and creativity. Just surfaced from the memory well, Don't bring me down- the Animals 1966. Having said all that, Nehir Erdogan's love scene is very touching. She deserves better, I hope one day a quality picture for her to really shine through comes to the silver screen. Turkey (and U.S. for that matter) being as it is, only one name comes to mind who can come to the rescue; Sinan Cetin can you hear me? Derya Ataker-not a film critic, thank god! USA
