Don't expect something very good...
9 February 2013 | by erkansirin78See all my reviews

I am not specialized in cinema, acting, playing etc. I am just an ordinary audience. So I review on this aspect and write what I feel.

I like Kenan Imirzalioglu. Maybe because He is my fellow countryman. But I have to critic him a little. On screens He all plays same character. This man always belongs to below middle-class, undergraduate. He is altruistic, straightforward, brave, gentlemen, devoted to his family but tough to bad guys. He barely has an occupation. What he does and how exactly earns his life we don't know. He always oppose, challenge and never surrender. This way of his personality attracts many hostiles and sooner and later those who are not get over with him try to take revenge from his family and beloveds. Though he is ready to die for his beloveds, his stubborn nature indirectly risks his family. He can't get out this contradiction. Although he seems to perform different character this time in Uzun Hikaye, there are many many similarities of his ex-roles. Yusuf in Deli Yurek, Mehmet Kosovali in Aci Hayat, Ezel/Omer in Ezel, Yandim Ali and Mahir in Karadayi. He failed this time too. I expect somewhat different roles which requires different personality and bored to see mono-type man.

As to movie. I couldn't get a clear message. I wondered from beginning to end how it was gonna finish and how all things bind together. Unfortunately it did not. The movie even don't point a serious critique judiciary although main character suffers from prosecutor's injustices. But Ali said that he was gonna campaign legal struggle that would exemplary to all town. An then I couldn't understand when and how Ayla and Mustafa fell in love and run. Anyway at last it was so simple and below the average. The movie was full of Turkish style conditioning, forceful and unnatural acting... Don't waste your time..
