The story of Aziz through an existential crisis longing for his youth: he is not happy with his work nor his private life, which is hijacked by his sister and her family, who have been living with him for some time now.
Heading towards his middle ages, Aziz is not content with his life. He doesn't like his job, which he works in for years, and where he falls further away from his dreams. He cannot find peace at home either, since his sister and her family start living in his house after his brother-in-law goes broke. His nephew Caner is a naughty boy and he turns the house into a living hell for Aziz; all he seeks is relaxation. Deep inside, Aziz feels that his relationship with his girlfriend Burcu has come to an end after four years. His need for his solitude and spending some time on his own deepens every single day. Aziz simply wants to be free. He is stuck in a cycle and he has to find a way out. Eventually, in a moment he feels more desperate ever before, an opportunity arises for him. However, Aziz has to tell a mean lie and keep up the act. Aziz can't miss this chance. The consequences he has to bear change his life utterly, in a way that he never asks for.
I have been impatiently waiting for this movie since the first day I heard about it, because I love every single person, who is in the movie. However I didn't like the movie.
I believe the movie looks like a great project on paper, but for some reason the directors and writers failed to convey that to us. There are some ridiculous scenes that have no place not only in this movie, but in any movie. I watched every second of it with the hope that it would get better and everything would make sense in the end, but unfortunately I finished it quite unsatisfied and utterly disappointed.
I don't understand how absurdity is very popular in Turkish movies, yet nobody has ever used it deservedly. For instance in this movie, you see absurdity being used excessively and very unnecessarily so that it gets impossible for you to get involved. It is also partly because of the characters that were written down and dirty.
One of the writers Berkun Oya already proved his great ability to write thanks to very succesful series Innocent and Ethos that he wrote himself, but for some reason he could not show this ability in this film. Collaboration of the directors Taylan brothers with the actors Engin Gunaydin & Binnur Kaya was also much better in Vavien, which is one of my favorite Turkish movies. Therefore Stuck Apart is unfortunately nothing but a disappointment for me.
