The Way We Are tells the story of a group of friends who reunite with each other years later. Each member of the group, who spent their childhood and youth together, are scattered into different directions after they transition into adulthood. The group that was taken care of by Nezihe when they were kids, feel great sadness when they find out that Nezihe, the person they care most about in life, is sick. They decide to meet in her house in Izmir to be by Nezihe's side during this time. Each of them, who have completely different characters, have to stay together for a few days due to Nezihe's situation. This occasion not only causes past settlements between members but also unexpected events.
This one is just one of those movies that want to become something good but can't. You can't do everything in one movie. What was this movie's motivation? What did it tell us for 120 minutes long? And why did the movie waste its twist at the end?
What character arc did you just developed? There were pointless, unnecessary actions all along the movie. It was like 5 year-old kids playing in the park and nothing more.
Also bad acting. Boran Kuzum and Meriç Aral were kinda nice. Other cast was just doing their regular no emotional and memorised act.
In the middle of the movie, at some point Serdar Keskin joins the scene. Almost 30 seconds of screen time. A lot better than the main cast.
And this is a comedy tagged movie. A comedy? Really?
4 is just for beloved Hümeyra and cinematography (just for a bit).
Edit: I saw that some people said "You should not expect much from a movie.". Well, you just give your time for a movie. You can do a lot of things with that time. And if a movie just ruins that precious time of yours, you would complain about it.
