You're invited to the Gulseren's world...
6 October 2009 | by See all my reviews

I had to go to this film because i owed Cagan Irmak - the writer and the director of the film - hours of great moments passed in front his amazing films like "Babam ve Oglum", "Issiz Adam" etc. The issue was not attractive to me : The weird relation between mother and the son, Gulseren and Egemen...

Egemen is a character you can pass by on the streets everyday but it's not valid for Gulseren who wander on the limits of schizophrenia and neurotism. She overprotects her life in her house and in this life there is no room for anyone other than Egemen. What is the reason of that kind of life and where will it take them are our main questions in "Karanliktakiler" (can be translated like "Ones in the dark").

I have to say that Irmak has his sign in his movies that i can identify in 15 minutes and it's deepening in this movie. But this is not my type of story! Meral Cetinkaya is shining in her role as Gulseren... Characters are well-written and the music which is hardly-played is good. To the ones who are attracted to the story...
