ARAF is the story of Zehra and Olgun whose lives are caught in a vacuum! The world in which they live and work is a place of throwaway culture and constant change. They too are waiting for a chance to change and escape from their empty, monotonous lives.Written by
It is an okay film if you don't have great expectation.It shows a good portrait of the dull lower "class" Turkish people's life;their naive yet unreachable dreams,their hopes,their struggles,their obstacles.When they were supposed to go to college,two main characters were working for financial support.They desire the things that is normal for their peers.They feel trapped but they have no where to go,no money on top of those their families' expectations and society's prejudices have weigh on them much more and their struggle to escape in any way crashes into wall.But i didn't like the second half,unlike first half this part wasn't very well developed ,there were things i couldn't understand.End was okay but process could be better.Film made me think but when movie ended,first thing crossed my mind was it could have been better.
