Powerful cinematography, but...
14 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

Jin, like in Cosmos, is a cinematographic masterpiece! The nature, the colours, music, and everything else... However... The however lies in the dialogues. In the film the girl is a PKK run-away, thus she is a Kurd. However, when she speaks Kurdish, you know that she does not know the language. This might not be a big deal for many, BUT IT THROWS ME RIGHT OFF! When I see this, I remember the Turkish movies from the 70, where in trying to speak like the Kurds, the actors would sound horribly wrong. This same problem existed in the movie Eastern Promises. The guy who speaks Turkish sounds like he is an Iranian, and you know it, because you know the language. In short, although I enjoyed Jin a lot, I could not get this problem, till the last minute.
