A wonderful movie from the promising young director
It can not be described with just words, you have to see it with your own eyes to see the masterful usage of camera, scenery and colors.
Even though it's the first movie of Ali Vatansever, the style he has shows this young lad has more to offer in the future.
The story is somehow enigmatic at the first seeing and my suggestion would be to watch it couple of times to get the full story. The main reason for that is the movie contains different stories of different people told simultaneously. The end brings all of those personal issues to an end. The more you watch it the better you understand the history of all.
Also the music used is really top-notch! It catches you and accompanies you along the movie. My favorite is "Ask Bitti" performed by Jan Barbour.
To be honest I'm looking forward to having more of Ali Vatansever's work.
