Turkish film "Jîn" confirms its creator Reha Erdem's immense talent.
27 January 2014 | by FilmCriticLalitRaoSee all my reviews

Although his first film "Oh Moon" was a huge success, Turkish director Reha Erdem firmly established his career in cinema with enormous worldwide success of Kaç Para Kaç/"Run for money". In "Jîn", he has chosen to portray the intrinsic nature which human beings share with animals. This film scores well in all departments especially photography which is highly close to nature. Animals and birds have been captured vividly to such an extent that one cannot help wondering whether they are really more natural than some of the most famous popular actors. Despite its overt political message for peace, "Jîn" begins with the portrayal of a young girl on the run. How is she able to conquer all obstacles and emerge a winner appears to be the film's main theme. Although it presents viewers with some idea about what is happening to people living in remote parts of Turkey, one cannot fail to marvel at the realistic depiction of the life of Kurdish people. This is one of the principal strengths of this film.
